Scientists in America have used a high-speed video to find out how snot, or mucus, travels and separates after it leaves our mouths during a sneeze.

It moves in sheets, bursts, bags and strings before it becomes droplets.

It's hoped the research will help experts learn more about how sneezing spreads germs.
