Sublimation

What do you do with dry ice? If you were my son, you would make awesome soap bubbles with it. We got some in the mail when my mother sent us a gift package of Omaha Steaks.

A home freezer can’t get cold enough to keep the carbon dioxide frozen, so the only choice is to let it go gaseous. Frank Jr. dropped the dry ice into a cup of water. He soaked a paper towel in soapy water and then placed it over the cup to create a film. As the dry ice warmed, it made bubbles that looked like they were filled with fog.
