A droplet's pancake bounce

Studies of the impact a droplet makes on solid surfaces hark back more than a century. And until now, it was generally believed that a droplet's impact on a solid surface could always be separated into two phases: spreading and retracting. But it's much more complex than that, as a team of researchers now reports.
