New Delhi:

Space and its myriad mysteries have always fascinated mankind. Now, thanks to technology, it has become easier to understand and experience its many aspects. A case in point is a video shared by Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield showing a simple experiment. The video, which was originally shared in 2013, has gone viral after being re-circulated on social media.

The clip, posted to Twitter by the Wonder of Science page, shows astronauts discussing what happens when you wrap a wet towel in space. The clip shows Mr Hadfield wielding a towel. However, instead of the water falling to the ground due to the lack of gravity, it forms “a tube” around the towel. The note attached to the video said, “This is what happens when you take out a wet towel floating in space. Credits: CSA/NASA.”

Providing further context, a second tweet read, “Experiment by Astronaut Chris Hadfield on the International Space Station, designed by high school students from Nova Scotia who won a national science competition organized by the Canadian Space Agency “

The official post shared by the Canadian Space Agency is titled, “Removing water on the ISS – for science.” It said, “2013-04-16 – CSA astronaut Chris Hadfield conducted a simple science experiment designed by grade 10 Lockview High School students Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner.”

The transcript attached to the video quoted Mr Hadfield as saying: “Meredith and Kendra suggested I did it in a bag, but the bags don’t know water in space. So instead, I filled the water bag. It has drinking water in it and I’m going to put a bunch of water in this washcloth. Okay so here’s a damp wet washcloth, I’ll bring the microphone so you can hear me when I’m talking and now let’s start taking it out. it’s really wet.”

Explaining further, Mr Hadfield said, “If I release the cloth carefully, the water sticks to my hand,” comparing the texture of the water to “Jell-O on your hand or Gel-O on your hand”. it occurs. To be an “amazing moisturizer”.

The washcloth, on the other hand, “just floats in there, like a dog chew toy, soaking wet,” he explained.
