Caption: Fluid dynamics. Supercomputer simulation of two fluids (red and blue) flowing past each other in opposite directions. Curling ripples of turbulence, or vortices, are created at the plane where the fluids make contact. This phenomenon is known as the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability and can be observed in a wide variety of circumstances, such as in clouds or wind blowing over calm water. Simulation created by Daniel Price, Exeter University, UK.
