What Happens To Wet Towels In Space?

What Happens To Wet Towels In Space?


It's not a frequently asked question but it has an interesting answer. Two Grade 10 students designed a question that asked what happens to water contained in a wet towel when you wring it out in space and won a national science contest held by the Canadian Space Agency. The experiment was then performed by Commander Chris Hadfield aboard the International Space Station. The results are remarkable. I won't ruin it by telling you what happens but go ahead watch and enjoy the video and try to guess what you think happens to water in space when you wring out of a wet towel.

Many thanks to  on Twitter for pointing out this great video.
