Bubble model

An early black and white silent film demonstrating the creation of a bubble raft model on the surface of a liquid.

This film shows bubbles being created via a constant stream of air being added just below a surface of a liquid. It then shows the larger bubble raft model under closer light, highlighting the creation of dislocations and fractures within the model structure.

This film is likely to be an excerpt from a longer film on bubble rafts, possibly made in the 1940s -1950s by Lawrence Bragg.
