BuzzSkyline writes"Astronaut Don Pettit, who is aboard the International Space Station right now, puts charged water droplets into wild orbits around a knitting needle in the microgravity environment of the ISS. A video he made of the dropletsis the first in a series of freefall physics experiments that he will be posting in coming months."
