VIDEO: MythBusters Captures Pistol Shot in Super Slo-Mo

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of the Discovery Channel show MythBusters recently got a look at what it's like to fire a bullet at 73,000 frames per second.

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are the hosts of the Discovery Channel show MythBusters.

The show, according to its website, “aims to uncover the truth behind popular myths and legends by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of experimentation.”

On a recent episode, MythBusters took a look at a bullet being fired from a pistol in super slow motion — 73,000 frames per second, to be exact.

Adam Savage is nearly rendered speechless by incredible slomo footage that captures a bullet being fired at 73,000 frames per second. Shot at these speeds, the video reveals a dance of pressure and fire that would otherwise be missed by the unaided eye.
