This movie shows the typical bursting process of the soap bubble. First, after the liquid soap film starts to rupture, the edge of the liquid soap film is driven by surface tension force and progresses rapidly from the right side to the left side. Moreover, the liquid film is atomized into the droplets at the edge of the liquid soap film. Then the liquid soap film shrinks into the small region, and the liquid soap droplets splash in all directions.
