Image: Eureka Prize: Balloon Brains
For promotion of New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography only.
Ballon Brain demonstrates the property of surface tension holding together a mass of water that has been released from a flexible container, moments before the force of gravity overpowers the cohesive force of surface tension. Relying on the co-ordination of the photographer and the ballon popper - “1 2 3 Pop” was heard 256 times to capture this image.
