  8. Spent an entire day saying nothing but these facts. My parents, not happy.

  9. Time to annoy the hell out of my friends with these quotes lol

  10. A friend and I were debating this earlier. If a water sphere were injected with some air, would the resulting bubble remain stable within it for a time, or quickly diffuse into then out of the sphere? He believes the more dense water would collapse to displace the air. I believe the density would be of little consequence in micrograity and surface tension would allow the bubble to remain within the sphere. Are either of us right?

    1. No clue why you are asking that here, but here is your answer: ISS air bubble in water in space...
