Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Bubbles is a clear, surprising and entertaining introduction to the science of bubbles.
Bubbles are beautiful, ephemeral, fun, fragile, jolly and slightly unpredictable. We're all familiar with them, but we don't often ask what they actually are.
The great scientists of the Western world - Robert Hooke, Isaac Newton, Lord Rayleigh and more - studied bubbles seriously. They recognised that they had a lot to say about the nature of the physical world, and they poked, prodded and listened to find out what it was. In the years since, we've learned that this bulbous arrangement of liquid and gas does things that neither the gas or the liquid could do by itself.
Written by the celebrated physicist and oceanographer Helen Czerski, Bubbles explores how everything from the way drinks taste to the Earth's temperature are influenced by bubbles.
This book has a message- never underestimate a bubble!

Helen Czerski is a physicist, first and foremost, but she's acquired a few other labels along the way- oceanographer, broadcaster, author and bubble enthusiast. Her academic home is the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London, where she studies the physics of ocean bubbles, particularly the ones underneath breaking waves.
