Harold Edgerton

After Tuesday’s class on motion I realized that I needed to mention Harold (Doc) Edgerton. He is an iconic MIT photographer who use strobe photography to capture a bullet cutting a card in half

Check out the site about him! MIT’s largest student makerspace for FSAE, solar car, and other teams is also named after him.
