I think the guy was creaming his jumpsuit. I really couldn't stand to watch that for too long. How was that anything resembling "science"?

Oh i watched the whole thing to see if there was any experiment going on. Some highlights included 'Hey Look Up My Nostril' and 'I Wore A Black Shirt So I Look Like A Floating Head'.

/How did this person get qualified to be an astronaut???

He was trying to demonstrate that things do not behave in expected ways when you're out in space, so that's something to keep in mind when more people get up there to travel and colonize. A good point, but it took too long into the video to get there.

That was pretty cool; we need to get him a high-speed camera though. Those waves propagating over the surface probably look a hell of a lot cooler at 2k fps. Also, i hope he didn't go through with that "i'm going to make tea out of this later" plan; there was kind of alot of random crap floating around in there by the end.

I'm guessing it's Don Pettit. He's always doing stuff like this.

"just because I'm in space and I can"

I think it's excellent that we have astronauts who think this way.

He sounds Canadian.

/also, I'm guessing this is geared toward younger schoolkids
//I have no problem with this

Probably by going through an incredibly rigorous screening process that excludes all but a tiny number of extremely capable people.

I like the fact that he's kind of goofy and weirdly excited about space stuff. Most of the astronauts these days seem kind of boring.

Graph paper background would have been nice.

I get this excited when I teach physics and calculus, etc. God, I'm such a nerd. I need to get me a pocket protector.

Not an experiment, but cool. Also, the video ends too soon. HOW IS HE GOING TO GET THOSE THINGS OUT?!
