San Francisco

Putting Sterling Johnson in a bubble. One of the first places I had a chance to meet other people who were intensely interested in bubbles was at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Eiffel Plasterer, David Stein, Louis Pearl, Bernie Zubrowski, Zev Luz, Tom Noddy and others were making bubbles and explaining the scientific principals behind bubble films. Connections made here have been helpful as I have traveled around the world. On one trip to an Exploratorium bubble festival I put Sterling Johnson inside of a bubble. I poured a bucket of my special bubble solution over him and he was soaking wet. He was able to walk through the side of the bubble without it popping..... a "first" in the world of bubbles.
