Bubbles: A Ladybird Expert Book
Helen Czerski is a physical physicist first and foremost. However, she has also been a broadcaster, author, and bubble enthusiast along the way. She is a graduate of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University College London. There she studies the physics of ocean bubbles and especially the ones beneath breaking waves.
Bubbles is part of the Ladybird Expert series and is an entertaining, clear introduction to the science behind bubbles. Bubbles are beautiful, fleeting, playful, fragile, jolly, and somewhat unpredictable. They are something we all know, but not often do we ask them what they really are. Robert Hooke and Isaac Newton, Lord Rayleigh, and many others, took bubble studies seriously. They knew they had much to say about the nature and structure of the world. So they poked, prodded, and listened to discover. We’ve seen that the bulbous combination of liquid and gases can do things that neither the liquid nor the gas could by themselves over the years. Bubbles is a book by Helen Czerski, a renowned physicist/oceanographer. It explores how bubbles influence everything, from the taste of drinks to the Earth’s temperature. This book is a reminder to never underestimate a bubble. Every book is beautifully illustrated and features the original Ladybird illustrations for the first time in nearly 40 years.SKU: PRK0718188290
