A Hammer Blasting Through a Mirror in Slow Motion is a Sight to Behold

    YouTube stars The Slow Mo Guys are back with another science(ish) video.

    This time, they are breaking a mirror with a hammer and filming at 120,000fps (frames per second). Just for comparison, their normal slow mo videos are recorded at 2500fps, but a mirror breaks incredibly fast and therefore a more powerful camera is required.

    This is one sight to see. You can actually see a shock wave ripple through the glass milliseconds before it breaks into a million pieces.
