Here’s another way cool video of astronaut Chris Hadfield doing an everyday thing in zero gravity aboard the International Space Station (ISS). This time he’s wringing out a wet washcloth. He’s performing 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.
