Sand and water...

Nope, not something poetic about desert travels...

Science! Like the kind that inspired a reporter to write a science fiction opus about changing the desert!

This time, it is not the dunes which are analyzed with fluid-wave-mechanics, but more commonly-known fluid-behaviours which are being replicated with sand:

If nothing else, it's quite purty...
