With their ubiquitous presence, both in natural phenomena and modern technology (not to mention our childhood), bubbles have intrigued scientists throughout human history. Some of the questions which puzzled Leonardo da Vinci in the Italian Renaissance, have only very recently been solved... and there are many others still to be solved. This interactive talk will be a tour through the "bubble world", paced by demonstrations and stories, with the ambitious goal of demonstrating that bubbles are everywhere! On the way, selected by the audience as in a book with multiple endings, the speaker might pass from innovative techniques to cure cancer to sonoluminescence (and the quest for clean energy), from the International Space Station to the sea's abyss, from coke and chocolate to the New York Fashion week, from the Vomit Comet to inside a faulty washing machine.
Lectures begin at 7.30pm. There is parking near the lecture theatre.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: London and South East Branch
