4 stunning photographs capture the drama of simple science experiments

Swiss artist and photographer Fabian Oefner works on the boundary of art and science. His stunning photographs, four of which are pictured above, capture the beauty of simple scientific principles, such as surface tension, magnetism, and centripetal force.

Clockwise from the top left, a floating soap bubble is captured at the moment it bursts; colorful marbles of oil paint float in a solution of water and methylated spirits; paint whirls outward from a metal rod attached to a spinning power drill; flame travels through a glass bottle containing whiskey and oxygen.
