Super-camera shows how light moves

Scientists in the US have built a camera that can show light moving by taking pictures with an exposure time one billion times shorter than a normal camera.

The device, built at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, can take an image every two picoseconds.

Alok Jha went to MIT to meet the head of the team behind the camera, Professor Ramesh Raskar.
