Sometimes, you see something or get an idea and you just don’t rest until you get it. That’s what happened to Destin Sandlin at Smarter Every Day when he saw an old video of a vortex colliding perfectly with another. This may not sound that cool, but he saw something very unusual. Something he spent a long time researching and couldn’t find answers for.
He knew that the only way he could start to find answers was to recreate the experiment for himself. To produce two vortices that aligned and collided with each other perfectly. It’s taken him the last four years to finally make it happen, he filmed the whole thing in slow motion using a Phantom, and it’s a thing of beauty.
