Slow Motion Awesome: Raindrop Impacts on Sand

There are a lot of everyday events that look very different when you slow them down — a lot, but this short video on a rain drop hitting landing in sand is particularly impressive.

The video was recorded by chemical engineers at the University of Minnesota researching…. wait for it…. the types of craters that water drops of different momentum leave in the sand. The findings… these impacts are very similar to what happens when an asteroid hits a celestial body like earth or the moon.
