WATCH: X-Ray Lasers Vaporize Water Droplets in Slow-Motion

Physics doesn’t always look exciting. Smashing particles and detecting gravitational waves happen at scales too minuscule for us to observe, and even if we could, even earth-shattering discoveries often appear as just a spike in a graph, or an aberration in the data.

Every so often, however, a physics experiment comes along that we actually can see, and sometimes those experiments are pretty darn cool. Take these videos from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory,
