Zero-G Water Bubbles

Featured Video Play Icon

Astronaut Don Pettit narrates some of his experiments with air and water droplets in microgravity in this video. The lack of body forces and buoyancy in microgravity means that surface tension effects frequently dominate. Pettit’s demonstrations also involve some fun basic physics with bubble behaviors inside of water droplets. See more of Pettit’s Saturday Morning Science videos for additional microgravity fluid mechanics.
