Astronaut Chris Hadfield continues to make us all insanely jealous of the time he's been spending on the International Space Station, with another video showing what day-to-day life is like orbiting the Earth. Except this time he shows what happens when you wring a soaking wet cloth in zero gravity, and the results are almost magical.
When subject to the Earth's gravitational pull, wringing a wet cloth simply results in a deluge of water falling to the ground. But on the space station where gravity is negligible, the water is instead squeezed out into a self-contained tube surrounding the cloth. Were we not 100 per cent sure Hadfield was an astronaut, we might be tempted to burn him at the stake for witchcraft. [YouTube via Boing Boing]
