Objects falling into a liquid pool create a beautiful splash, and, in this beautiful, award-winning video, the Splash Lab explores a peculiar instability that occurs just as the splash closes. The buckling instability they describe involves distinctive ridges that form along the splash’s ejecta sheet as it domes over and closes. The number of ridges depends both on the object size and the liquid’s properties. (Video credit: J. Marston et al.)
