ISS Astronauts Record a Colorful Liquid Ball With a 4K Camera

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


When you give astronauts aboard the International Space Station a 4K video camera, interesting things are not only bound to happen, but to be recorded in high detail and become posted on NASA's various online reaches to the public for everyone to enjoy.

In this case, it turns out that an astronaut was having fun with a water ball that was floating in microgravity, by adding various colored dyes and then adding a seltzer pellet to see what would happen.

NASA will be using these high-quality 4K video recording devices for much more than water ball experiments; in fact, the firm will be using them to record data for various other experiments as well; this way, everything is recorded in high enough detail that it can be careful studied for years to come.

It sure is mesmerizing enough to make you want to be the one in space, isn't it?
