Title: The impact of a droplet on a liquid surface

Description: The video captures the impact of a droplet of a fluid on a pool of the same fluid. The impact is followed by the formation of a crater that is encircled by a rim of the ejected fluid. As the crater grows outwards, the rim undergoes an instability to form a crown with the fingering phenomena and satellite droplet formation following. The crown then collapses, resulting in the ejection of a Worthington jet, the collapse of which results in a secondary jet.
