Tiny, Underwater Explosions at 120,000 fps are Awesome

The Slow-Mo guys filmed tiny firecrackers detonating underwater. The contained explosions were slowed down to 120,000 fps.

The Slow-Mo Guys keep blowing stuff up in spectacular, slow-motion fashion.

The YouTube duo took small 'bangers,' let them detonate underwater, and recorded everything. They took the process frame by frame and captured it at 120,000 frames per second. You can easily see the expanding blast followed by the explosion shrinking back. The suspended particles look so cool underwater, but definitely, do not try this at home.
