Coalescence Cascade – the Dance of a Drop

December 14, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Floop!

That’s how a droplet of water disappears when dropped on water – right?

Wrong.

What we do not and cannot see with our mortal eyes is the exquisite and mesmerizing dance that droplet performs, teasing the body of water again and again before it dissolves itself completely.

Now is you chance to watch what scientists call the “Coalescence Cascade” in slow-motion on a Discovery channel video, made possible with the help of a hi-tech camera taking pictures at a rate of 10,000 frames per second!
