    I was hoping to see astronauts curl up the towels and slap each other with them.

    Is there anything that is not made fascinating by 'removing' gravity?
    Even his watch was interesting to...erm...watch.

    Fire in zero G, as well. Although not seen in that clip (Dunno why... there was plenty of water to go with it...)

    Another thing that is fun to see in a "weightless environment" :

    Ah yes, I retract my earlier statement.
    Not all things are made fascinating...

    I had forgotten about Vomit Comets.

    A small 'gravity free room' full of people chucking up must be a singularly unpleasant experience.

    Not if they recently ate an assortment of colorful astronaut food. Then it could be the making of a sort of space art gallery.

    Meh - I've never been a big fan of Pollock.

    I prefer Dali - give me a small 'gravity free room' full of people doing LSD instead.

    Actually fire in zero gravity would be a good one, I’ve not seen that.

    That first clip led me to a quick search on YouTube to see for any other gravity tests. One short clip was watching water droplets orbiting around a statically charged netting needle which was interesting to watch. I guess from watching these clips I’m surprised on how well our bodies adapt to zero gravity. I know it weakens the muscles after awhile.
