Water Drops Colliding at 5000 FPS [Video]

Earlier this week we shared some stunning photographs of water drops colliding in air; now we’re back with a 5000 FPS slow-motion video of the same phenomenon.

In the above video two drops of water are dropped, a fraction of a second apart, so that the second drop smashes into the Worthington Jet (the water up spout) created by the first drop. Add in a little milk and food coloring to make the collision more pronounced, film it all with a 5000 FPS Phantom Flex slow motion camera, and you’ve got yourself a stunning slow motion video.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Beautiful. And the music, somewhat Zen-like, is perfection.
