This stunning video shot by Modernist Cuisine shows a drop of water hitting a hot frying pan.

After watching the video, I was amazed by the brilliant high-speed video and still can’t believe that it is a bubble being recorded in slow-mo. The "water droplet doesn’t instantly vaporize because a thin layer of vapor briefly insulates the water," says Neatorama. This phenomenon is called the Leidenfrost Effect. I don’t quite understand all the technicalities to it, I just know that the Modernist Cuisine video blows me away. Stats for Slow-Mo Science Videos Trending: Older & Mild
