Astronauts Puts A Camera Inside An Orb Of Water, And Heres What Happened

During Expedition 40 in the summer of 2014, NASA astronauts Steve Swanson and Reid Wiseman along with European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst explored the phenomenon of water surface tension in microgravity on the International Space Station. The crew submerged a sealed GoPro camera into a floating ball of water the size of a softball and recorded the activity with a 3-D camera.

How amazing is it to see the water floating at Zero Gravity. The water assumes a roughly spherical shape because the surface tension keeps it from scattering around the space station in tiny droplets.
