Soap bubbles. Abstract image showing a layer of soap bubbles lit from below. Bubbles such as these always form the lowest energy state possible, known as a minimal surface, as a result of the balancing of surface tensions. The study of minimal surfaces is important in many fields of science, from catalysis to fundamental physics.
