Thanks Bill

I should hire Bill, my neighbor. Through his connections with the geniuses at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he worked until recently retiring, he comes up with some really good stuff found on the Web. And some truly awful stuff, to balance it all. This one’s a winner.

This video
, taken at 2,000 frames per second, shows what happens when a drop of water hits the still surface of water. It involves surface tension, air layers, and till now unseen magic. Very worth a look-see!

I had seen the emerging droplet before, but never knew it would produce more droplets, one after another.
