On this episode of Planet Slo-Mo, The Slow Mo Guys visit a gunnery range and have a literal blast firing some VERY big guns.

Destin of SmarterEveryDay uses Schlieren imagery to get into the physics of faster-than-sound objects and the shock waves they produce.

The Slow Mo Guys got hold of the TEENIEST gun EVAR and had more fun firing it than any of those big 50-cals!

Destin of SmarterEveryDay got himself invited to the John Pelham Artillery Competition, where cannon enthusiasts get to play with their expensive toys. Natch, he also got super-slow footage of cannon blasts and shockwaves.

 

Destin of SmarterEveryDay tries to re-create the famous “Edgerton Shot.”

Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys wanted to find out how wildly the speeds of different caliber bullets varies.

Destin of SmarterEveryDay teamed up with Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys in yesterday’s post; today we see the other side of the collaboration:

Destin of SmarterEveryDay teams up with Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys to see just how bullet-resistant it is.

The Slow Mo Guys teamed up with Destin of Smarter Every Day to borrow his massive .50 cal rifle and destroy things in the Alabama woods.
Warning: This gun is INCREDIBLY loud. Be careful with headphones!

Destin of SmarterEveryDay paid a visit to Soteria Suppressors, makers of a see-through gun suppressor, and filmed it at work at 110,000 frames per second.
