What happens to water in space?

The amazing thing about water (and when you think about it any substance) is the way it ‘behaves’ under different scenarios. For example, it can be a solid, liquid or gas – dependent in how much energy has effected the water.

But what would happen to water in space? We know that objects are not under the same gravitational force produced by the Earth as objects get further away from the Earth. So, would be water ‘float’ around in the vacuum of space or would it fall back Earth? The answer to that question is dependent on the scenario.

The following video doesn’t exactly answer those question – but it does give us an understanding of waters awesome properties and the way it behaves in space.

Enjoy
