Physics of Splashes

A nice piece from NPR on jets from dropping a ball into sand or water. It's not new, but the video is quite clear about laying out the problem and showing how the scientists understand the problem.

Some of this research is also featured on the APS Focus page who posted one of the videos of jets in liquid.
