SPINLab video pairs music and science

September 24, 2014

SPINLab scientists used a tank, a record player, and dye to create an exciting video that illustrates the formation of  Taylor columns.  These striking columns are fluid dynamics phenomenon that occur as fluid moves around an obstacle in a rotating system.  Check out the new video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GGfsW7gOLISPINLab video pairs music and science
