This award-winning, high-speed video shows the epic life story of a match once lit. The scientists who made the video used a special technique, called Schlieren imaging, to highlight the flame’s thick gas churning and mixing with the air around it in a beautiful black-and-white display.
The video won the Milton van Dyke Award at this year’s American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics.
