Mesmerizing Soap Bubbles Demonstrate Movement Of Vortexes In Storms

It sounds incredible, but the vortexes inside of megastorms move in much the same way as a swirl on the surface of a soap bubble.

To learn more about the underlying physics of vortexes so as to better deal with catastrophic weather, physicist Hamid Kellay from the University of Bordeaux has captured high speed images of soap bubbles.

According to Fast Co. Design, these photographs has enabled them to “track the movements inside a vortex with incredible fidelity”.

Watch the mesmerizing video clips of the vortexes on soap bubbles below—isn’t it amazing how the same phenomenon can occur on such a tiny and gigantic scale?
