    That's pretty cool. I don't know what I was expecting, but that wasn't it.

    I wasn't sure what to expect but as soon as he started applying the water to the towel I realized the surface tension was going to play a big part.

    For those into fluid mechanics and heat transfer, this is the case of

    Bond Number (Bo) = (gravity forces) / (surface tension forces) = 0.

    Being an astronaut must be one giant mind ****! Your mind has been trained it's entire existence, to expect things to behave in one manner..... only to have everything behave in a totally different manner when in zero g. That was pretty cool!

    If it took me that long to unwrap and unfold a washcloth I would never wash my hands.

    I would think they might have access to ear mounted bluetooth microphones. They are in a SPACE STATION for crying out loud, I would think that an upgrade in microphone technology wouldn't be out of the question.

    Pretty cool video jbh. Showed my 3 year old daugther - mind blown!

    They probably eat a lot of bbq ribs in space and use moist towelettes because wash cloths are a pain to ring out.

    One thing as I kid, I thought astronauts has messed up bodies because their blood didn't flow because there was no gravity. We hadn't learn about the heart yet lol

    Also, that is amazing.
