At 2000 frames per second, this video shows a droplet of water bouncing on top of the surface of liquid that it touches. According to science, this happens because there is a very thin layer of air between the droplet and the surface of the water which gets pushed out as the weight of the droplet pushes downward. When the air between the droplet and the surface gets squeezed away, the water droplet pops and the resulting wave on the water pushes the droplet upwards causing it to bounce. This happens several times until the water droplet is small enough to be absorbed by the water. [via]
