Soap bubbles offer key to maximizing efficiency

Soap bubbles offer key to maximizing efficiency: "'It's more of a geometric issue because a sphere is the least-area way that you can enclose that amount of air,' said Morgan, who has published six books and more than 100 scientific articles. In 1999, he and his collaborators proved the 'Double Bubble Conjecture.'
The double bubble theorem effectively states that the double bubble 'provides the least-perimeter way to enclose and separate two prescribed volumes,' according to a paper Morgan co-authored that was published in 2004."
