Nature.com - Hurricanes On A Soap Bubble
1 comment Thursday, March 20, 2014 |

Soap bubbles are a fascinating phenomenon.
In this video, you will see mini-vortexes forming due to the soap bubble heating up to 45 degrees centigrade.
The thermal plumes resemble hurricanes forming in the earths atmosphere, but that is as far as the analogies extend.
However, Xiao-Lun Wu a physicist at the University Of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, says that by observing the turbulence in soap films we can find more about turbulence more generally (for example, how hurricanes might react to surrounding turbulent air). source
