Who discovered the Rayleigh-Taylor instability? Was it artist David Alfaro Siquerios? Or was he the first to observe it?

    $\begingroup$ Could you expand your question a bit? I think it would be a good idea to at least provide some evidence to back up your suggestion that Siquerios was the first to observe it. $\endgroup$

Rayleigh published his findings in 1883. Siqueiros (thus, not "Siquerios") was born in 1896. Does that answer your question?
