These tiny marvels of physics hold the key to many scientific problems. From animal behaviors to the way drinks taste, bubbles shape our world in unexpected ways.

Outstanding documentary

I liked that it gives the low-down about the properties of bubbles and also how they can be applied, e.g. for medicine, climate science and more.

Bubbles apply to a lot more than you'd think. They involve singularities and could even help us understand black holes!

Superb documentary

This is a very interesting and well-made documentary. My grandfather was fascinated with soap bubbles; he passed some of his enthusiasm on to me. (The book "Soap Bubbles: Their Colors and Forces Which Mold Them" by C V Boys is a treat, and was one of his favoutite books.) It is great to see giant strides being made in our understanding by a new generation of scientists.

a complete new view of an aspect of our physical world that is a well presented eye opener. I hope to interest my grand children in watching it and try some of the experiments, especially the strength of viscosity of water.
