Science!!! Ain't It Great?!?


What happens when you wring out a washcloth soaked in water while in zero gravity? Now's yer chance to find out!

I gotta admit, it was different than I expected. I figured the water would sort of stick together, and it would end up getting sucked up by the now squeezed washcloth. The surface effects, not so much. Yeah, I learned all about surface tension and the molecular bonding that makes it possible, but it still didn't occur to me.
