You may never have heard of him, but you’ve probably seen many pictures taken by the photographic methods he developed. Doc Edgerton invented high-speed photography. Thanks to him, we can see what a bullet looks like going thru a apple, what a water droplet looks like as it hits the floor, and exactly how weird baseball pitchers look as they throw the ball.
