Ordinary Shrinking Water Drop


Apparently that happens every time a drop of water hits a bigger body of water.

I have watched this video three times already and I find myself getting more and more fascinated every time I watch it. First of all, the fact that so much beautiful complexity can exist beyond the detection of our eyes is amazing enough, but the nature of the complexity, the wonderful symmetry, and the transformational nature of it blows my mind.

Anyway, what does it have to do with geometry? That’s your job. What questions can we ask about this video? When you think of a question, think about what information we would need to answer the question and beyond that, think about if the video gives us enough to find the needed information.
