You Can Freeze Bubbles

When the temperature sinks below 5 degrees Fahrenheit, bubbles will begin to freeze.

What’s Going On?

A bubble’s shell is composed of a layer of water molecules surrounded by two thin layers of soap. Technically, a bubble will freeze below 32 degrees Fahrenheit like all water. The only problem is that bubbles tend to burst after a few seconds, so in order to see a bubble freeze, the temperature needs to fall to a temperature that will freeze water molecules more quickly.

So, will frozen bubbles last forever?

I wish… The air within a frozen bubble will slowly leak out, and the frozen shell will crumble under its own weight. ¬†Also, if you blow the bubble using your warm breath, the air will cool causing a drop in pressure which will collapse the bubble further.
