Amazing! Early on you can see the front oblique shock waves and aft turbulent supersonic wake. Thanks for sharing.

That's gotta be a little spendy, but I'd love to see something like that at a rocket launch. A *billion* frames per second? Talk about slo-mo!

In the first video, we see the frame start to shift back towards the right. I wonder if that's standard carriage return, or if it's the rebound from whipping left so fast.

The second projectile in the 2nd video looks just like a PAC-2! And that last clip where the clug carrier knocks the projectile slightly off course? friggin insightful
