Liquid exploding out of a soda can after impact of a supersonic 0.22 caliber bullet.

A passage of a supersonic .22 caliber bullet through a soda can causes the fluid to expand outwards through the hole created by entry and exit and the bullet also drags a certain amount of fluid along with it. This photograph is a microsecond slice of time during this explosive event.
