Edgerton Dropper

A display at the Edgerton Center shows one of Harold Edgerton's many strobe inventions. This shows two streams of droplets that are released in synchronization with a strobe flash. The image captures two flashes, though the droplets are mostly superimposed on one another.

Edgerton was commissioned by the Atomic Energy Commission through the 1950s and 1960s to develop techniques to photograph nuclear explosions.
