High-speed camera images reveal explosive microbead formation process

The explosive reaction of a liquid metal dropping into water has been captured with high-speed cameras by researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia. The images reveal how the explosive formation of water vapor around the liquid metal influences the shape of the metal as it hardens. For certain metals, perfectly-shaped microbeads are created during the powerful reaction with water.
