Instability is a common feature of fluid flows and can generate a near infinite set of patterns. The video above shows the Saffman-Taylor instability, an interface instability that occurs when a fluid of lower viscosity is injected into a higher viscosity fluid. In this case, the fluids inhabit a thin space between two glass plates. The less viscous fluid displaces the more viscous one in a series of branching finger-like shapes. If the situation were reversed, with a more viscous fluid injected into a less viscous one, the interface would be stable and expand radially without any pattern formation.

The excretory system of Schmidtea mediterranea, a small freshwater flatworm. S. mediterranea have a remarkable ability to regenerate. Cutting one in half will generate two fully functional flatworms; cutting it into quarters will generate four; and so on. In fact, scientists have shown that even a single cell from one flatworm is capable of regenerating an entire organism.
