Triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMSs) combine the beauty of bubble films and crystals: They have locally minimized area and repeat themselves throughout the space. Since the first TPMSs constructed by Schwarz, new examples have been discovered at a very slow pace. As TPMSs find ubiquitous applications in natural sciences, physicists and chemists made significant contributions since the 1970's, while mathematicians fall far behind to provide rigorous treatment. After reviewing this interdisciplinary history, I will talk about recent mathematical constructions of (explicit and implicit) new TPMSs. They bring hopes as well as challenges to an ultimate classification of all TPMSs of genus 3.
