Stopping Time Four Magnet Set

The four rectangular images in this photo are individual magnets -- the background is packaging. These photographs, classics of modern art and science, are the work of Harold Edgerton (1903-1990), inventor of the modern electric strobe. In over five decades of work at MIT, Edgerton's quest to reveal what the unaided eye cannot see led to countless innovations that revolutionized photography. With exposures of a millionth of a second or less, Edgerton's images are as remarkable for their precision as they are for their sensational beauty.

Magnet Size:  Playing card cut by bullet is 3" x 2.5"
