What would happen if you shot a bb into a suspended elastic strip? Visit this site, by Loren Winters, to find out. It provides an introduction, preparations, analysis, and interpretations of this experiment--along with an interesting strobe image--and the author presents a paradox for visitors to resolve.  A student gallery shows various examples of strobe photos, including balloons popped with paintballs and "fractured food."
