Watching An Engine From The Inside Will Blow Your Mind

A four-stroke engine, like the one in your car, operates like a very calculated dance: between air, fuel, electricity, fire, an explosion, and all the parts that have to move around to harness that explosion to move the car forward. Whoever made the video below managed to stick a camera inside a cylinder chamber as the engine was running and capture the magic.

When you stop and think that when you're cruising the highway at 3,000 rpm, and everything you're about to see happens more than 50 times every second, it's absolutely amazing.
