Dick,

Wolf is right. It is in the Skylab Physics Laser disc.

I Googled "video weightless water drops" and this is one of the many
hits:=20

also, there is some nice stuff in Wiki, Spherical Harmonics:

Is this helpful? - J

I Googled "video weightless water =

this is one of the many hits:

Is this helpful? - J
