Crystal Critters – salt structures that come to life!

Samantha McBride (MIT) and Henri Girard (MIT) explain how they accidentally discovered a new fluid dynamics phenomena where the evaporation of salt water forms amazing creatures such as a ‘jellyfish’, ‘crab’, ‘elephant’ and ‘droid’. Research by Samantha McBride and Henri Girard at MIT.

This video is part of a collaboration with the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and the UK Fluids Network featuring a series of interviews with researchers from the APS DFD 2019 conference. Sponsored by the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and the UK Fluids Network. Produced by Tom Crawford.
