CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed a simple science experiment designed by grade 10 Lockview High School students Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner. The students from Fall River, Nova Scotia won a national science contest held by the Canadian Space Agency with their experiment on surface tension in space using a wet washcloth.

Very cool indeed. Not the result I was expecting. And this is from two very smart kids!

It's an amazing video but I heard on the radio today that it costs $20,000 to launch one liter of water into space. I don't know if it was a good use of money (assuming the radio was correct).

Once the water is up there it is constantly recycled.
