Chris Hadfield's been brilliant on the ISS.
hate it when there's no gravity
then punch the water off?
if the water had detergent in it so that the surface tension is reduced / not present?
not really in space, is he?
they have heating on the ISS...
glad you agree
in the same way that when you're in a car you're not actually on the road.
Is it pedant Friday or something?
If it were pedant Friday, you'd be well within your rights to say that there are large parts of space closer to the sun (among other stars) which are warm enough for water to remain in a liquid state.
your problem would be the water boiling, not freezing
it would cause the water to boil
that the whole story is a fraud.
so the astronauts can survive - air, temperature, pressure and humidity. Liquid water can exist in these conditions. The only thing missing is gravity.
I'm not sure where the conspiriacy in this is.
no-one can hear you squeegee
and then loads of other videos from the ISS, I went to lunch. Seeing all the zero gravity shenanigans must have affected my brain because when I went to hand the lady my sandwich I just let go of it as I pushed it toward her through the air. I think my brain was expecting it to float slowly towards her. It didn't and I looked like a dick.
