There’s more to making a soap bubble than a breath and a wand
From bath time to birthday parties, bubbles bring joy to almost any occasion. The short-lived, soapy spheres mystify both young and old with their rainbow-hued swirls. Kids play with them for hours, gleefully chasing them as they float out of reach, or competing to blow the largest bubble (the trick is to inflate the bubble as slowly as you can). Bubble blowing may be one of life’s simplest pleasures, but the science behind them can get complex. When you blow a bubble, you’re seeing physics at work.
