A team of French physicists announced they blew a bubble that lasted for 465 days before popping. The University of Lille team, whose findings were published in the journal Physical Review Fluids, said their research into soap bubbles found they tend to pop after just a few moments due to the "gravity-induced drainage and/or the evaporation of the liquid" inside the soap sphere. The team, Aymeric Roux, Alexis Duchesne and Michael Baudoin, studied typical "fragile and ephemeral" soap bubbles and gas marbles, a type of bubble made from a liquid solution that contains plastic beads. The researchers said they analyzed water-based gas marbles and gas marbles made with a solution of water and glycerol, a compound commonly used in various foods and medicines. The gas marbles containing glycerol displayed particular longevity, with one of the bubbles lasting for a total 465 days before bursting. The team said the gas marble's lifespan is believed to be a new world record.
The researchers said the long-lasting bubbles they created during their project could be used to create stable foams.

Getting your much-needed exercise isn’t complicated — all you need is 10 minutes and a set of stairs. A study (in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise) put 31 sedentary young women into a training program where they were asked to do several variations of ten-minute exercises three times a week over six weeks. The winner was walking up stairs. For just ten minutes. Just three times a week.

Hoping to shed a few pounds? If you are, you might think it's a good idea to get your friends on board to bolster your social support and increase the odds that you'll stick to your goal. But according to a new study, you're better off keeping your weight loss plans to yourself. According to this study published in the journal Obesity, more than 75 percent of respondents said they "never" or "rarely" felt supported by friends or family when they were trying to lose weight. In fact, researchers found that participants who didn't receive support from friends were the most likely to shed pounds. 26 percent of participants found it annoying when their friends went on diets and 25 percent said their friends were grumpy and miserable when dieting. For these reasons, one in four participants said they have sabotaged a friend's diet by tempting them with unhealthy treats, inviting them out for dinner and drinks, or flat-out talking their friends out of dieting.

Astronomers are watching the skies, waiting for two cosmic giants to collide. In a galaxy located 1.2 billion light years from Earth, a pair of black holes could potentially be engaged in a gravitational tango, pulling closer to one another until they merge as one supermassive black hole. This could occur as soon as 100 days, or up to three years from now. If this iconic merger does take place, it would be the first time astronomers witness an event of this kind and provide significant clues as to how black holes grow to their supermassive sizes.
