MEGA BUBBLE MAN
But Jesus called the children to Him and said, "Let the little children come to Me. And do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Luke 18:36
On this Scientist page, Mega Bubble Man invites you and your family to try out various experiments, learn about bubble science, colors, geometry, physics and more. Since you're here... I imagine you've tried to make your own bubble formula. Ahhh... the ole bubble mix. Well, there are many different formulas, some for small bubbles and some for mega bubbles. I use a custom mix for my mega bubbles. .
A long time ago I tried to perform small bubble tricks and found I wasn't very good at it. I didn't have a good bubble solution nor a steady hand. These tricks require both... as do large bubble tricks. I use a mixture of guar gum and J-Lube for the mega bubbles. For the really big bubbles, guar gum is a favorite worldwide! It helps make the bubbles stretch and stretch without popping!! I love it!
I'm working on making some larger bubble "wands" to show off the really big ones. On Facebook, I have many bubble artist friends that are super talented at making the big boys. See
Did you know that each color in a bubble represents the thickness of the bubble? See more here!
Did you read that? In the very, very, very old En-Gedi Scroll are "Bubbles" !
Learn about very, very old bubbles...

'Extremely Rare' Four-Rainbow Sighting Mesmerizes the Internet

An astonishing view of four rainbows has been spotted in the Langdales region of England's Lake District, a U.K. national park.
The rare sighting was captured in early November by Nigel Danson, a 52-year-old professional landscape photographer based in the county of Cheshire in Northwest England.
The photographer shared a viral video of the sighting in a November 7 post from his Instagram account @nigel.danson. He told Newsweek: "It is actually two double rainbows. The second set of rainbows is caused by a reflection off Lake Windermere and is an extremely rare phenomenon."
The rainbows lasted around 45 seconds, "as the rain was passing through quickly," he said.
"I have seen many double rainbows...but [it was my] first time seeing four rainbows," Danson added.
