Abstract

We review recent progress in the physics of foams. While substantial, it is mainly directed towards stable, static, dry foams. The expanding frontiers of the subject include the prospective use of microgravity to create stable wet foams. The ESA-funded project "Hydrodynamics of Wet Foams" is aimed at this objective.
