What kind of objects?Nuclear bomb explosions. The rapatronic cameras are capable of recording a still image with an exposure time as brief as 10 nanoseconds (that would give 100 million frames per second if the camera was capable to do multiple pictures). The camera uses two polarizing filters mounted with their polarization angles at 90° to each other and a Faraday cell which briefly changes the polarization plane of light passing through it, acting as a shutter.Created by: Cleotechnology riddles »hard 46% bullet shotsbullet shots987rocket launchesrocket launches458nuclear bomb explosionsnuclear bomb explosions2196sound wavessound waves1129 During a full 24-hour day, how many times would the hands of a clock overlap?22.
