Xenon-Hydrate Bubbles

Image shows a bubble hovering in front of laboratory instruments

Detailed Description

A bubble wrapped in xenon-hydrate floats in the laboratory. Gas hydrate is a naturally-occurring, ice-like form of a gas and water that is stable within a narrow range of pressure and temperature conditions. The hydrate makes the bubble more rigid, and it does not undulate as much as a non-hydrate-encased bubble does.
