DISCOVERY CHANNEL INVESTIGATES BUBBLE SCIENCE WITH CASEY CARLE
Connecticut’s Own Professional Bubble Expert
In March 2009 Casey was contacted by researchers from Discovery Channel Canada to coordinate a segment for their popular program "Daily Planet" on the scientific aspects of bubbles, focusing on issues that would address mysteries about bubbling for the lay person. Topics included.. "Why are bubbles round no matter what shape device is used for making them?", "Is it possible to make a bubble that is not spherical?", "What is the physics behind how soap bubbles form?" "Are there unusual things you can do with a bubble that might surprise our viewers?" "How are bubbles used to advance our knowledge of the world, the universe?"
Intriguing questions that required a veteran bubble manipulator with a flare for the theatrical to make it visually engaging for their viewers. This was no job for a ghostbuster or mythbuster or even Buster Brown. This was a job for a bubble buster! (Well, in this case a NON-buster of bubbles.. but you get the drift).
Researchers and producers from "Daily Planet" worked with Casey to set up a taping at the Public Library in Suffern, NY (Thank You Suffern Library!) to combine his tour with that of their NY City based co-host, Ziya Tong. Ms. Tong also served as host, writer & director for the Canadian science series The Leading Edge, and recently finished shooting for NOVA ScienceNOW, which will air later in 2009.
After working together Ms. Tong had nothing but praise for Casey's work
saying "From full human-sized bubbles to bubbles on fire, Casey creates a
magical world of bubbles and does a fantastic job of explaining the
science behind it!"
When asked how the taping went Carle said, "Working with Ziya was a blast! Her enthusiasm and curiosity were infectious. It felt more like play than work, which I expect will be clear when the segment hits the airwaves."
