These inflatable pools can be easily set up.

Although water is normally thought to freeze at zero degrees Celsius, pure water vapor in the upper reaches of the atmosphere will freeze only at temperatures colder than -35 degrees Celsius. In order to freeze at warmer temperatures, it is necessary to have nucleators — tiny particles around which water vapor will gather and freeze. The researchers discovered that the most common nucleators are not fine dust (as traditionally thought) but bacteria, and among such biological nucleators Pseudomonas syringae is the most...
