Re: [tap-l] vibrating soap
bubbles

I really think this sort of meaningful and fundamental classic videos
should be made available to educators in a contemporary format like
e.g. DVD. Is the content of the Skylab Physics Laser disc available
from somewhere? Also that clip of Prof. Baez sounds very intriguing. I
sure would like to see it.


Actually PIRA maybe could take the lead on making such material
available=2C much like Sutton's book on demos. PIRA may negotiate a
copyright for educational purposes and make it available. Immortal
classics in better than Youtube quality would have the potential to
fulfill a potential demand.


Just some thoughts of mine

Wolf is right. It is in the Skylab

I believe there was a film of what you're
describing from the old
SkyLab. Rather than soap film=2C it
was a sphere of water which did
all the things you describe. --
