See an Astronaut Wring a Towel in Space — I Dare You to Keep Your Jaw Closed!
A friend recommended this video from astronauts at the International Space Station. Apparently it was made by Canadian astronauts. Does that make them “Eh”stronauts? Anyways, someone asked them to film someone wringing water from a towel in space. Even if you’re not a science fan, this is INCREDIBLE!
As he explains, water won’t drop in space, so it’s got nowhere to go but just out of the towel. Because water is “sticky” (they call it surface tension in the video) on a molecular level, the water stays right there and transfers over to his hands like a gel or a goo. He calls it a moisturizer :-) Just watching the water shoot out of his “bottle” was my favorite part.
