Slow-Mo Extreme Close-Up of a Water Droplet

I’m sort of fascinated by how physics acts on the very large and very small scales (ask a physicist sometime why 90% of your body is actually empty space, then try not to have an existential crisis.) Up until fairly recently, our observational techniques were limited to real time and anything beyond was left to either guesswork or imagination. It’s only very, very recently that the kind of equipment needed to perform these observations was available to the average layman.

Thus we have the above: a water droplet entering a still pool shot from a Phantom camera at what appears to be about 2000 frames per second. I can almost guarantee that you’re going to be surprised by what you see.
