The ineffable beauty of blowing stuff up

Some amazing high-speed pics of stuff getting shot or smashed. Beautiful in their way. There is a whole series featuring a very brave red-fingernailed model holding the targets:

I guess it's not as dangerous as it looks -- that must be a high-precision setup to be able to capture the moment of impact, and it stands to reason that the aiming mechanism is precise as well. In addition to pics of vegetables getting shot, there are bottles, light bulbs, beautiful droplets of water, and bullets getting fired. Awesome. Check it out.
