The industry of nanoscopic bubbles is booming. Nanobubbles are used in various industries, from agriculture and water treatment to humane medicine. Yet, in the academic world, the existence of nanobubbles has attracted both skepticism and intrigue since classical theory predicts that gas bubbles cannot achieve stable equilibrium. Can we prove these gaseous domains exist, and if they do, how do they survive? I will review contemporary theoretical perspectives on the stability of nanobubbles and explain how experiments either vindicate or disprove them.
