This is really cool, I want to try it, so if your'e reading this Richard Branson or the like




Also in 3D:






During Expedition 40 in the summer of 2014, NASA astronauts Steve Swanson and Reid Wiseman — along with European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst — explored the phenomenon of water surface tension in microgravity on the International Space Station. The crew "submerged" a sealed GoPro camera into a floating ball of water the size of a softball and recorded the activity with a 3-D camera. (Video: NASA)


Enjoy and be jealous, I did both.

just wondering though, is it smart to play with water bubbles inside a space ship? Wouldn't want to lose control of that and have it end up inside some electrical panels.

There is still a part of me that says while these people may be smarter than me in terms of astrophysics and other astro...uh, stuff. They still haven't lost their child-like wonder to explore and have fun.

Because you could tell they were having fun.

Kudos to them.

I think I read somewhere that they even collect condensation from the astronauts for the water storage aboard the ISS, so it's probably nice and sealed in there.

well I guess it wouldn't just sit there and soak on any connections or anything. If they stay observant they can probably just bat it away haha or slurp it up.

There is a lesson to be learned here everybody!

You'll notice that they didn't say...

"Hey Y'all! Watch this!"

Those words portend doom...why isn't that in the holy texts?

Very cool! 'Reminds me of Lindsey's "Russian Water Tentacle" in the film, The Abyss.

The air conditioning system in the ISS collects the water and converts it back into drinking water.

I thought "trust me" were the famous last words. Yeah "watch this" is no no too

They are working - it is called trying to educate people!

Do you think that they work 24/7?

Amazing and got me thinking.. What if their would be world's where the gravity was so low on non existant that complete seas were just like that bubble of water? And sea creatures that had to cross floating bubbled oceans .. imagine such a world..
