Bubble Chambers: the Old New Detector Technology

Seventy years after their invention, bubble chambers continue to prove useful for exploring the boundaries of our knowledge of particle physics. In this talk, I will present a short history of bubble chambers and motivation for their use in dark matter search experiments, then focus on challenges and successes of pushing them to lower nuclear recoil detection thresholds while maintaining control of backgrounds, and finally conclude with some projections for upcoming experiments.
