Prince Ruperts Drop

I came across this video while killing time at Reddit.

I hadn’t heard of the Ruperts Drop before, indeed it’s wikipedia entry is quite light on details. But like the video shows, its very interesting stuff. Another reminder of why physics is such an amazing subject.

Update: Came across a very good explanation here as well. Adds to the video.
