The speed of light in a vacuum is 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second), and in theory nothing can travel faster than light.
Light (or rather, its speed) is the benchmark of time. The passage of time is defined by your speed in relation to the benchmark set by light. From light’s perspective, it travels at an infinite speed because finite speeds are a phenomenon of time, which does not operate without a benchmark, and light cannot provide that benchmark for itself so it is internally timeless and therefore functionally infinite. But from our perspective subject to time, it is finite.
A research team has recently built the world’s fastest ever camera called T-CUP. It is so quick it is able to capture 10 trillion frames per second (fps)
The research team, led by Caltech’s Lihong Wang, put themselves to the task and developed this new record-breaking camera which they have called T-CUP.
T-CUP was built on existing technology called compressed ultra fastphotography (CUP), a method that it is capable of 100 billion fps. That’s very fast but not fast enough for INRS’s researchers and to capture what’s going on at the femtosecond scale.
A is one femtosecond is quadrillionth of a second.
This camera is intended for scientific purpose but later all scientific achievements are to be utilized for art medium.
