Wringing Out a Washcloth on the ISS

Here is a simple structure for scaffolding a science video clip with students.

Predict: What will happen when you wring out a soaking wet washcloth in the microgravity of the International Space Station?

Observe the video below. (Click HERE if you cannot see the clip.) Where does the water from the washcloth go?

Explain why this happened. Make a claim and support it with evidence and reasoning.
