Slow Motion Explosions: Reactions Filmed At 2000 Frames Per Second

THIS is chemistry class like you've never seen it before. Shot at 2000 frames per second these blink-of-an-eye chemical reactions are revealed in stunning detail. The project was organised by Science Photo Library and led by Andrew Marmary, resident chemist at the The Royal Institution in London. They include detonating caesium in water and igniting highly unstable nitrogen triiodide with the touch of a feather. It is hoped this beautiful images will be used in classrooms across the country to help help promote science. And with fewer pupils choosing the subject these days - maybe this is just the spark teacher's need.
