    For those who didn't know, Dr. Edgerton invented the strobe light. For the military during WWII, he created a version that was millions of candlepower, so powerful that it enabled the Allies to take recon photos at night, thus allowing pinpoint bombing of Germany. He also created cameras with shutter speeds in the millionths of a second to use with the strobe light, and these photos were taken with one of those.
