    Suck, Squeeze, Bang,Blow....

    Someone had the great idea of putting a high-pressure, heat-resistant camera inside the cylinder of a four-stroke engine. Shooting at 1000 fps, the camera recorded just exactly what happens to make engines run. Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow!

    Fascinating to watch but nowhere near as dramatic as I had expected. Still, when you think that my little bike engine does that some 60 times per second (at 240 rps/14400rpm) it makes one wonder how the hell they ever manage to get the 'infernal combustion' engine to stay together, let alone work at speeds like that.
