Mixing and Unmixing Colors in Fluids

(Video Link)

Popular science educator Steve Spangler made this video to demonstrate laminar flow, which the Larousse Dictionary of Science and Technology defines as:

A type of fluid flow in which adjacent layers do not mix except on the molecular scale.

Spangler did so by injecting a container of transparent corn syrup with portions of colored corn syrup. He then rotated the container to mix it up. Next, Spanger rotated the container in the other direction, and colors separated almost completely.
