Free For All – CSA

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA), like NASA, is doing its best to engage their citizens in science and space technology. The current CSA commander of the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield, makes short videos aboard the ISS that are both informative and entertaining. Most notably, Commander Hadfield conducted an experiment designed by students from Lockview High Scholl in Fall River, Nova Scotia. The experiment  was part of a contest held by the Canadian Space Agency and had to incorporate objects readily found in the International Space Station. The winning experiment was simple in design, yet amazing in its outcome. The questions the students asked was: “What happens when you wring out a wet washcloth in microgravity?”

I could describe the results of the experiment to you but it is far more interesting to watch:

You can find more videos from the Canadian Space Agency on their YouTube channel.
