The Dance of a Water Drop at 10,000 Frames per Second (HD)
A water drop falling onto water dumps about half of its water into the pool of water below, then bounces back up into the air, and repeats until there’s nothing left.
Also watch: "Water Drop at 2000 Frames per Second" from the Discovery Channel's series 'Time Warp'.
The bouncing (which scientists call the "coalescence cascade") happens too quickly to be noticed by the human eye. But viewed at 10,000 frames per second, you can clearly see it.
Discovery Channel's series "Invisible Worlds: In The Water" used the latest in high-speed photography to turn never-before-seen wonders into an experience of beauty and learning.
Definition: coalesce - To come together so as to form one whole; unite (from Latin coalescere com- 'together' + alescere 'to grow up')
