    Chicago, United States of America.

    Various shots of two scientists setting up an experiment to take a photograph of a bullet in flight. An electrical charge set off by the bullet coming out of a handgun provides the light for the exposure. The resulting photos are pretty impressive, showing the bullet speeding towards the glass, smashing through it and leaving shattered glass behind.
