Stunning images prove that science and beauty can co-exist

The unique fishbone pattern is created by two colliding steams of liquids by Ted Kinsman. The pattern is currently the focus of scientists studying the strange world of fluid dynamics. The pattern is a stable flow state that is a balance of surface tension, viscosity, momentum, and gravity. This image was taken with a high speed flash at 1/40,000th of a second.
