A sphere of water floats in the International Space Station.

Ahh! So many days without an update! I apologize profusely. I am working on a post about lightning (far more complicated than I imagined!) and am also in the preliminary stages of building a Van de Graaff generator, which is going to be totally sweet. I just haven’t gotten anything into postable form yet. But, let me at least share a couple awesome youtube videos with you! These are from a series of experiments that International Space Station Science Officer Don Pettit did called Saturday Morning Science.

Rotating sphere experiments.

Sphere waves, bubbles in bubbles, antacid.

Here’s how the spheres are constructed.

There are more videos like this available on youtube. Try searching for Don Pettit, Saturday Morning Science, or microgravity. There’s also a terrific variety of amazing science videos on youtube on all sorts of topics. You only need to look.

Until next time!
