Video: Astronaut Uses Single Strand Of Hair To Move In Zero Gravity
It doesn’t take much of a push to get around in space, as NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg recently demonstrated aboard the International Space Station.
In a video to describe the effects of weightlessness, Nyberg used a single strand of her own hair to propel herself, tumbling slowly backward after pushing off a blue handrail on the orbiting lab. The brief experiment, which NASA posted online last week, was inspired by a conversation fellow astronaut Cady Coleman had with Sandra Bullock, star of the blockbuster space thriller “Gravity.”
