    interesting how it freezes from the top and the bottom to meet in the middle rather than just freezing all over

    I was hoping someone would pick it up at the end. I wonder how delicate it is. Also wonder exactly what bubble mix they used. A lot of people use glycerin in their bubble recipe, which has an application as an anti-freeze.

    I think regular bubbles work just fine. I cannot remember the location, but I do remember reading very recently about a group of scientists actually doing long-term 'research' on bubbles in freezing temperatures! That would be a fun job!
