Eureka Prize: Invisible Interaction

For promotion of New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography only.

Invisible Interaction - A soap film interacts with a mixture of burning hydrocarbon gases. The hot gas follows the contour of a bubble before breaking the thin soap layer and entering into it. This whole process happens in few milliseconds and is invisible to human eye. This photograph was taken using the Schlieren technique, which allows to study motion and interaction of transparent media with different refractive index gradients.
