Although ubiquitous in the environment, vortices have proven difficult to capture and study in the laboratory. Recently, researchers created a way to examine these small-scale whirlpools with the aid of a device specially developed for this purpose. Their recent paper examines the formation of vortices in fluids with and without added polymers.
