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.
Martha Morales uses her extensive knowledge of video pre- and post-production to help create EarthSky science videos in Spanish and English. As a Video Producer for EarthSky, her special focus is the EarthSky en Español 60-second video series. She acts as the EarthSky lead set coordinator, camera operator, and story producer – capturing interviews with the world’s leading English and Spanish-speaking scientists and editing them into an accessible, informative and effective message. To accomplish this, she draws from her B.S. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas as well as her experience working in television with PBS El Paso and Channel 6 Austin. Growing up in El Paso, TX, Martha embraces the dual identities that define the U.S.-Mexico border. She is bilingual in English and Spanish. Martha’s favorite thing about EarthSky? The amazing science shows that inspire wonder and hope about our universe and world.
