Elon Musk plans to get 1 million people to Mars, so we better start preparing for conditions in space. Luckily, astronauts like Chris Hadfield devote some of their space time to educate people about living in a zero G environment. In this video, Hadfield wrings a wet towel inside the International Space station and the water acts unlike we’re used to it on Earth. The liquid squeezes out of the cloth and because of its surface tension, it actually sticks to the surface of the cloth and Hadfield’s hands like jello. If you’re interested not only in how space works, but how it looks, check out Chris Hadfield’s photography book, titled You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes: Photographs from the International Space Station.
