As a firm believer in empirical study do I need to blow bubbles into my freezer or can you save me the bother ?

Oh..and when is say  'bubbles ' I mean bubbles from a childs bubble blowing bubbly thing with a stick thing !!

What about washing up liquid bubbles ?

Not qite what you are after, Neil. But this may be of intrest.


Soap bubbles blown into air that is below a temperature of −15 C (5 F) will freeze when they touch a surface. The air inside will gradually diffuse out, causing the bubble to crumple under its own weight.

At temperatures below about −25 C (−13 F), bubbles will freeze in the air and may shatter when hitting the ground. When, at this low temperature, a bubble is blown with warm breath, the bubble will freeze to an almost perfect sphere at first, but when the warm air cools and thus is reduced in volume there will be a partial collapse of the bubble. A bubble, blown successfully at this low temperature, will always be rather small in size: it will freeze quickly and continuing to blow will shatter the bubble.

Had a goldfish named "Bubbles" once.  He (or she) froze quite nicely.  Never did swim well after the freezing.
