Caption: A thin sheet of soap stretched between two wires flows at a terminal velocity. The fluid shows the areas of high and low pressure created by the unique shape of a non-rotating golf ball. When illuminated by white light, the colours produced correspond to the thickness of the soap film. These bright and colourful patterns allow researchers to determine how liquids flow.
