What happens when you wring out a wet towel in space?

Astronaut wrings out a wet towel in spacereddit

Recently, an old video started going viral on the internet once again. The clip shows what it’s like for an astronaut to squeeze water out of a wet towel in space. The video shows Chris Hadfield, a retired Canadian astronaut, performing this experiment on the International Space Station in 2013.

In the video, the astronaut takes a towel and wrings it well. Since there is no gravity in space, water does not fall to the ground as it would on Earth. Instead, it takes on a strange gel-like shape. This short 30-second video has left people completely amazed.

One user wondered how astronauts on the ISS (International Space Station) would wash their clothes: “It must be difficult to wash clothes in space.” Another joked that while washing might be tricky, drying clothes would be an easy task: “Just hang them outside the station facing the sun. It will dry in no time.”
