Paper Abstract

In a short period of two weeks experiments had to be done for court. The order was to investigate the effects of ballpoints shot transorbitally by a crossbow. The use of a high speed video camera turned out to be valuable for detailed observation of the ballpoint during launching and penetration of a gelatine model and demonstration of the results in court.
