"In its new environment, the oil immediately begins to change its composition, and much of that change happens on the first day" explains Samuel Arey, a researcher at EPFL and Eawag in Switzerland and corresponding author of the study...
Actually, there are very small gas bubbles almost invisible to the naked eye already in the beer before the impact. "They're called cavitation nuclei, explained Pierre-François Conzelmann. Their origins and exceptional stability are not completely understood yet. They also occupy micro glass cracks or cling to very fine dust particles which act as the nucleation sites originating the bubble columns observed in a glass of soft drink." For the experiments, the student tried to minimize the number of such sites by using a sterile container...
