Interference, Ruptured Open Access (recommended)
2018 Honorable Mention, Northwestern Scientific Image Contest. Soap is known for creating bubbles of air encased by a thin film of the soap and water. Bubbles are maintained by surface tension, which keeps the water and soap molecules in place; things like dry air or another object can break surface tension and cause the bubble to rupture. This image shows a thin soap film in mid-rupture. The wiggled lines on the intact side of the bubble reflect differences in the thickness of the film.
