“CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed a simple science experiment designed by grade 10 Lockview High School students Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner. The students from Fall River, Nova Scotia won a national science contest held by the Canadian Space Agency with their experiment on surface tension in space using a wet washcloth.” (YouTube).
Commander Chris Hadfield, perhaps the coolest person in the galaxy, performs a simple experiment. What happens when you wring out a wet washcloth? The answer is fantastic, looks awesome, and is all for science. What more could you want?
Wait, you want more? Check below the break to see a few more science experiments performed by Commander Chris Hadfield aboard the ISS.
Brushing your teeth in space!
Tears in space (don’t fall).
Phenomenal stuff, and I can’t get enough of just seeing things float in space! Onwards!
