To understand long-range interactions between particles at the micrometric scale, researchers utilize methods which are used to study the formation of our universe. Scientists have found that micron-size particles which are trapped at fluid interfaces exhibit a collective dynamic that is subject to seemingly unrelated governing laws. These laws show a smooth transitioning from long-ranged cosmological-style gravitational attraction down to short-range attractive and repulsive forces. The...
