In the annals of science, wringing out a washcloth doesn't sound like much of an experiment at all. Put that washcloth into space, however, and it becomes a whole different level of interesting.

So what does happen when you wring out a soaked washcloth in space? Check out the video to find out:
As an aside, Commander Hadfield does tons of other great, classroom-friendly experiments from the International Space Station and posts them on YouTube. He also has his own Twitter account in space, @Cmdr_Hadfield.
