Soap bubbles: two years old and sixty centimeters in diameter

Soap bubbles: two years old and sixty centimeters in diameter

Science 164(3877): 291-293

Soap bubbles of long life (over 2 years) and large size (over 60 centimeters in diameter, 100 liters volume) have been produced from bubble solutions improved by the addition of water-soluble synthetic organic polymers such as polyvinyl alcohol or polyoxyethylene. The natural life can be defined as the time it takes for the bubble, if left undisturbed, to contract from the original size to a flat film.
