PLATEAU'S BUBBLES (Soap Film Interference)<br />
Tetrahedron<br />
Each surface occupies the smallest possible area and connects by the shortest distance possible ("Minimum Surface"). 3 planes of soap meet along any line at an angle of 120º from each other and 4 lines intersect at any point at an angle of 109º 28' each.
