This 4K Video Of Water In Space Is Amazing

Astronauts have all the fun.

Sure, they have to put up with highly restrictive living conditions, the crippling anxiety of social isolation and the constant threat of something going wrong - ending in a spacey, suffocating death - but they get a room with a view, awesome bragging rights and fun zero gravity experiments.

For evidence of the latter, NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station have shown off a glorious 4K video of some simple tomfoolery involving water droplets and coloured dye. The video explains that they "dissolved an effervescent tablet in a floating ball of water, and captured images using a camera capable of recording four times the resolution of normal high-definition cameras".

They must be a riot at parties.
