Summary

The Youtube channel Zeste de science explores all aspects of scientific research, proving that even the most complicated scientific facts can be explained in less than 5 minutes, and that even the most seemingly trivial events of everyday life, if thoroughly studied, can contribute to the biggest technological advances.
Episode 2: How come beer does not overflow as easily as other drinks? Several experiments performed by physicists from France and the US have shown that the answer lies in the head. The friction between the bubbles and the glass depletes the energy, preventing the drink from overflowing. This discovery could eventually help secure the transport of hazardous materials.
