DISCOVERY
The physics of giant bubbles
A study inspired by street performers making gigantic soap bubbles led Emory scientists to a discovery in fluid mechanics: Mixing different molecular sizes of polymers within a solution increases the ability of a thin film to stretch without breaking. Plus, get a physicist's recipe for the biggest bubbles!
