    Physics is sweet. I wish rain drops were like that. Rainy days would be a lot less boring when your life is at risk just for being hit by a few rain drops.

    Water in zero gravity is really cool.

    The voice is really annoying.

    Wait a minute... we`re spending 50 gazillion kajillion dollars to send men into space to PLAY WITH BUBBLES??? I know NASA chooses men with "The Right Stuff", I just didn`t realise the "right stuff" was water and a bubble pipe...

    Today bubbles, tomorrow giant colony sized spaceships that get us off this rock right before the meteor hits.

    Just be glad that we GET to spend any money on them. With all the psycho religious Nazis that run this planet, im surprised nasa has been classified as a group of witches and burned at the stake yet.

    The experiment is awesome! But my favorite part of the whole thing is the guy`s lack of vocabulary :) The must be some simpified word for "Large Free Sphere of Water" and then there`s naming the entire experiment after that.

    I watched the whole video under the impression that these men were wizards or an anti-gravity machine had been invented without my hearing of it.

    I`m actually saddened that my versions aren`t true.

    yeah i thought it was very cool, and informative, and lol austin808 i had noticed the same thing. Zerocyde you tripper, i dont think you need to worry about that asteroid hitting us as it either will and we will be screwed or it wont, and well we will probably still be screwed just for some other reason. As for those neo nazi world leaders that you seem rather afraid of, the worst most threatening leaders are those claiming to be christian, im sorry to say, yours in particular. You should be more worried that NASA is an extention of the US army and is infact creating some terrible bubble weapon based on zero gravity bubble technology. But all that is gibberish as all that matters is that it looked pretty darn wicked.

    water is zero gravity is always fun to watch. i wonder if nasa lets jack ass(not talking about the tv show) losers go in to space. would be fun to watch a guy float buy and slap the big sphere of water. that might take days to clean up.

    F1Fan are you that stupid that you think that all muslims are terrorists, or do you perhaps think that maybe the legal wars waged by your and my nation are perhaps slightly worse, so 1 in every 10,000 muslim families has a bomber in it how many soldiers do we send to other lands to rape them, i mean i think its safe to say we have more blood on our hands even if we go for the classic i will have 1 soldier that can kill untill he is dead as apposed to 1 that can only kill as he dies, who do you think will win that war. sort it out we are the biggest terrorists in the world, not wanting to start a debate over this but you are iggnorant and need to look at the facts

    i would also like to say that all of you who get a headache from some one saying nuculie to many times should probably just avoid computers all together if you dont understand somthing that doesn`t make it boring or stupid, it just mean you are boring and stupid for being so narrow minded, i understand less then half what he said probably but i thought it was very informative and he is clearly far more intelligent then all of us, so why not just live and let live.

    "Technically" that wasn`t "zero gravity" because he and the water "bubble" was still under the gravitational pull of the earth, the sun, and the center of the galaxy. But back to zero gravity, to experience zero gravity you must go "outside" of the universe but, if you go outside of the universe you will also experience absolute zero (the point at which all movement stops) and you would literately turn to dust.

    But it still was a cool video.
