True science is the observation of the real world around us, development of a hypothesis to explain what you see and testing of this hypothesis to validate it. When you find something in nature that is hard to understand using standard logic this is perfect opportunity to learn something new and this was the case for Stanford University researchers recently.

A puzzling observation, pursued through hundreds of experiments, has led Stanford researchers to a simple yet profound discovery: The observed behavior is the under certain circumstances, droplets of fluid will move like performers in a dance choreographed by molecular physics.
