Caption: Shaving cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and the air is removed. As the air is removed the pressure drops causing the air trapped in the shaving cream to expand. The trapped air expands to many times its original volume before the bubbles burst. Part of a series taken at different vacuum pressures. Image 8 of 8.
