Summer’s quickly approaching and before you know it, it’s gone. But the folks at the Discovery Channel’s show Time Warp have helped us keep summer along a little bit longer. Time Warp uses high-speed photography to slow down the action of common every day occurrences, giving us a chance to see what’s really going on.
