Cranberry Juice Dropping into Milk

Major collection: Science & Technology
Named collection: Harold E. Edgerton Collection
Object type: negative
Maker: Edgerton, Harold Eugene
Date made: 1978

The magic of the strobe poises a liquid globule on a spout, very much resembling the circus performance of seals. Incredibly, a drop of cranberry juice rises out of milk in a red vessel. The brief close-up exposure, taken at the same speed needed to freeze a bullet, reveals a moment in the rapid transition of colors caused by the intermixing fluids. (from "Stopping TIme" (1987), pp. 129- 130.) (CC)
