Christmas Lecture for Schools: Bubbles Everywhere

Clock icon
14:30 – 14:30 29 Nov 2011
Location icon
Gulbenkian Theatre, University of Kent, Canterbury Kent, CT2 7NB

Speakers: Dr Gianluca Memoli, National Physical Laboratory

What have a Christmas pudding, a marshmallow and a glass of champagne in common?
What can be found on the International Space Station and in the darkest abysses of the sea? Which branch of science has something to say about where the stars and planets are born, and the inside of a malfunctioning washing machine?
Dr Gianluca Memoli is a ‘bubble scientist’ and, more importantly, a bubble enthusiast.
This interactive talk will be a tour across the ‘bubble world’, paced by demonstrations and stories and following the direct, with the ambitious goal of demonstrating that bubbles are everywhere!
On the route, selected by the audience like a multi-ending book, the speaker might pass from innovative techniques to cure cancer to sonoluminescence (and quest for clean energy), from coke/chocolates to New York Fashion’s week, from Vomit Comet to inside a volcano.
