Amazing Video of a Rocket Test with Nasa's New HDR Camera

HiDyRS-X records high speed, high dynamic range footage in multiple exposures simultaneously for use in analyzing rocket engine tests. Traditional high speed video cameras are limited to shooting in one exposure at a time, but HiDyRS-X can record multiple high speed video exposures at once, combining them into a high dynamic range video that adequately exposes all areas of the video image for comprehensive analysis.

A really impressive piece of imaging technology, and strangely beautiful. Via Peta Pixel.
