Celebrate Space this week: Astronaut Video – Water in Space

Celebrate Intergalactic Star Wars Day (5/4) and National Astronaut Day (5/5) this week with some space science.
In the weightlessness of space things tend to behave a little differently. Water is a good example as you’ll see on board the International Space Station. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield soaks a washcloth with water and shows what happens when he tries to wring it out. How does water behave in space? How does it move? Where does it travel? Discover how the phenomenon of surface tension behaves in a zero-gravity environment. What happens here will amaze even the most scientific thinkers.
