Wringing out a washcloth in space…


Weightlessness will never cease to be fascinating.

Well, at least not until space travel is a common activity for the everyday guy. In other words, not in my lifetime.

So, naturally, I was slack-jaw fascinated with this video of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield on the International Space Station wringing water out of a washcloth in space.

And being a terra-trapped land dweller I immediately began to fret about the escaping water droplets and what they may do to the electronics.

(I’m guessing the answer to that is nothing since, beyond a fellow astronaut casually capturing a couple of the drop in another cloth, there appeared to be no concern.)
