High speed camera visions (1/5000 s apart) from left to right. Between the 4th and 5th frames, four frames are omitted. The sample charge (CI-chondritic composition doped with 3 wt.% carbon) is suspended with a PtRh wire and is in its total melting at 1500 C. The horizontal width of the charge is 5 mm. A bulged bubble on the 1st frame is already ruptured on the 2nd frame, where multiple film-droplets are ejected while a jet is still developing from the center of the collapsed cavity. On the 3rd and 4th frames, the six film-droplets are spreading out in concert, while the first jet-droplet is detached from tip of the jet. Skipping four frames, the 5th frame shows three jet-droplets moving away from the mother liquid body. Their direction of motion is up and far side of the picture. The film-droplets are out of the 5th frame because they move fast
