Flowfield visualization of a gun shooting underwater high speed video

    I ran this experiment to find out what a gun would look like while shooting under water. Turns out to be quite interesting. The muzzle blast is NOT spherical as I first assumed.

    Kk. I'd link a video of my own, but I don't think the physics of my cat being spun around on a hardwood floor is that interesting.

    Ah, the magic of embedding. I'm an idiot.
