Bullet hitting an egg, high-speed image. This is a 22-calibre bullet hitting a raw egg. The bullet was travelling at about 450 metres per second (Mach 1.4) from right-to-left prior to impact. The bullet was inside the egg at the instant this image was taken, but is about to emerge at left. The eggshell has fractured and bits of raw egg and shell are being exploding outwards from the bullet entry hole at right. This photograph was taken using a 1-microsecond electronic flash.
