levitating explosive reaction

Here is a selection of experiments with droplets of water some of which are performed either levitating or in zero gravity. Above; a nugget of sodium and a globule of water are made to levitate and then collide using acoustic levitation, reacting violently. And below a selection from the international space station where you can experiment with ” a free floating sphere of water about the size of your head”
