I’ve had a look at a number of NASA astronauts in space clips and my favourites are always those when you see water globules floating around. The only astronaut sequence that doesn’t involve some inanimate object floating around that I enjoy has to be when Howie (Big Bang Theory) goes into space. Of course it’s all totally over the top, but I have a feeling that space travel / habitation for an extended period of time is actually more like that than all the edited stuff we get to see – astronauts having a barney with their families back home; weird idiosyncrasies coming out. I mean, think about all the weird you get to see and experience when you’re on a long haul flight – whacko passengers performing like toddlers because they’re cooped up for ᵡ amount of time.
Again, I digress. Stick to the topic at hand, Shaw! *kof* …
Why is it that water globs in space?
While researching the topic I learnt something new, again – marvellous, marvellous, marvellous and this is what it is:
Water floats inside a space not because there isn’t gravity (because apparently there is always gravity) but because when they are in orbit, they are actually falling (as is the ship), so everything else is falling too hence the floating food and liquids.
As you probably know, the Earth is curved and thanks to this, that’s where the magic really begins! You, your spaceship and everything inside it might all be falling towards the Earth, but because it is curved and you’re moving in a quick sideways movement in orbit, such that our planet is continually curving away, you never really reach the surface so start floating around instead.
So, although it’s unlikely you can you take your water cooler with you, if you were able to, and it wasn’t bolted down, you could probably pick the whole cooler up with one hand because of the weightlessness you would experience. If you could get it past Mrs. Furtheringstoke that is. Netticasinot Online :: kasinopelitfi
