Smarter Every Day has given us plenty of cool and entertaining video lessons in physics and stuff. I think my favorite was the one about poop splashes. This is another great example of something that I've certainly never seen before. A Prince Rupert Drop is what is formed when you drop some molten glass into cold water. Because of the way that it cools (from the outside in) it creates a structure that is under significant stress. Destin from Smarter Every Day shows what happens when you upset that stressed structure. Of course he does it with a totally awesome super slow motion camera which makes me totally jealous. Pretty cool stuff.
