Researchers Explore New Property of Bubbles (image) Princeton University, Engineering School Share Print E-Mail Caption Princeton researchers have discovered that bursting bubbles can push tiny droplets of a surface material down into a base liquid as well as sending them into the air above. The finding has important implications for science and industries that are concerned with mixing liquid solutions. From right, Howard Stone, the Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W.
