Watch a water balloon pop in space

Science on the space station is so freaking cool

By  

In the latest "Science off the Sphere" video from the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Don Petit pops a bunch of water balloons to demonstrate microgravity and surface tension that allows a popped water balloon to reform as a water sphere.

The videos are created through a partnership with NASA and the American Physical Society - more videos and "challenges" are available at this site: www.physicscentral.com/sots
