Since I learned to knit last summer, I’ve been obsessed with the craft. I love anything and everything knitting related, but the idea of mixing science (specifically in this case physics) with knitting makes me geek out!
What I’m bringing you today is a video narrated by the astronaut Don Pettit from the International Space Station explaining how the physics in space work with a knitting needle and water.
The video is just under six minutes long, and describes how satellites orbit and how the aurora borealis works. It is absolutely fascinating!
What are you waiting for? Go check it out! You have to see it to believe it!
