Drinking Water in Zero-G [HD]

How to Drink Water in ZeroG Due to its unusually large surface tension, water will tend to form relatively large spheres in a microgravity environment when expelled from a container. In this case, the water droplet size was largely determined by the size of the water bottle opening. Even though the droplets are put into motion and are spinning, they more or less stay together in one contiguous sphere (until eaten of course). This footage was filmed with GoPro's HD Hero, which provided an ideal wide angle view of the research airplane in these close quarters. Dr. Don Pettit performed many more science outreach experiments with water during his space station stay: /watch?v=bgC-ocnTTto
