What Happens When You Put Color Dye And An Antacid Tablet To Water In Space (Video)

Scientific studies in the space are overwhelming and interesting. They are dissimilar with the experiments done on the planet Earth and you will be astonished on how things work beyond the sky. An experiment demonstrated by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly could allow scientists to understand the processes going on in the weightless environment.

Kelly exhibited what happens when the color dye or food coloring and an antacid tablet were put to a clear floating ball of water in space. As you can see in the awesome video below when Kelly added color dyes the floating ball of water changed in color slowly until it became green that seemed to look like colored planets that were floating in the weightless environment. The green orb then had a cratered look when Kelly added the antacid tablets to the floating ball of water.

According to Evolving Planet, NASA has been using the Red Dragon 4K camera to capture the experiments being conducted in International Space Station (ISS). This helps the astronauts to gather detailed information in their scientific studies.

The camera is capable of recording at 300 frames per second at a resolution of 6,144 x 3,160 pixels. The 4K camera is about 4 times sharper than the regular high definition. This is about $57,000 high-resolution camera and very spectacular, according to Higher Learning. This camera was the same model that captured the shooting of the film the "Hobbit." This encapsulated more the details of the said film.

Scott Kelly was then on a historic twelve-month mission aboard the International Space Station when he conducted the experiment. Meanwhile, watch the video below and look at one of the current tweets of Scott Kelly on Earth Art Autumn leaves. They are fantastic!
