Playing with Antibubbles

Belgian researchers have seen the creation, movement and exploitation of antiburbuiles. The antiburbuilas are layers of spherical air filled with liquid and surrounded, so they have a reverse structure of bubbles. They were first seen in 1932, but until now little knew about them. For physicists, observations made now can be an important step forward in understanding fluid physics.

For the formation of antiburbuiles has been added a solution of water and soap in a glass tray with the same liquid. In the beginning a jet of liquid blood cells was formed that later became a leak of antiburbuils. Some anti-burners lasted two minutes before exploding like normal bubbles.

It is indicated that antibubbles are generated and destroyed by fluid instability. In addition to soapy water, they have also managed to create antiburbuilas with a saline solution and a beer.
