    Here's a cool "off topic" bit of high-tech entertainment to start your week off right. The above video shows NASA astronauts at the International Space Station having a bit of fun with a GoPro camera, a water bubble and zero gravity.

    While the effect displayed is not spectacular, it definitely has that "geek" cool factor and provides a "surreal" experience. The camera and water bubble almost seem like they are CGI renderings. Enjoy!

    Loved it when they were inserting the camera and it almost popped out the other side of the water globule.

    this is one of the coolest videos I've ever seen.

    going to space is something I've ALWAYS wanted to do, being an astronaut is something I'll never be able to do through the government (bad eyesight) hopefully civilian space travel becomes a reality in my lifetime

    If you put a non waterproof phone in that water globule, would there be water damage?
