When Bubbles Burst

What happens when a bubble bursts?

Research indicates when bubble skin breaks, it retracts and, while folding in on itself, it can trap air to form baby bubbles which, in a chain reaction, collapse on themselves to create even smaller baby bubbles. The smaller the bubble, the greater the internal pressure, the quicker the burst.

Here's a video.
