Welt aus der Sicht eines Propellers

How the world looks from the perspective of a propeller. The background rushing past is the world appearing to revolve. In reality, the propeller rotates more than 2000 times per minute – and with it a new camera system created by DLR researchers at Göttingen. Thousands of recordings have enabled them to make deformation of propeller blades in flight visible for the first time.
