'Supercooling' is when you chill a liquid below its freezing point without it becoming solid. Try this amazing trick by following these simple step-by-step instructions.
- Two 1 litre bottles of water (deionised water for car batteries works best, but you could use filtered water)
- A thermometer (optional)
- A clear mixing bowl
- Two buckets
- 8kg of ice cubes
- 3kg of table salt
Washing Your Hair on the Space Station
Expedition 36 astronaut Karen Nyberg has a unique challenge in space that Chris Hadfield didn’t have to deal with.
She’s got long hair, and lots of it.
Here she explains how she washes her goldy locks in space. It’s not that different from how you might wash your hair on Earth, only with much less water and no elegant, tropical essence créme conditioner.
Even though they have water recycling systems on the ISS (yes, they drink recycled urine), water is a limited resource on the ISS. That means no “Rinse, Repeat”. As she explains, all those escaped globs of liquid will be sucked up and recycled, too.
The science they do in space is awesome, but the modified routines of daily life might be even cooler.

BBC Science Club - Physics
BBC Science Club came up with this tremendous short animation video detailing the history of physics. You probably know the names —Galileo, Newton, Einstein— but this video dives into a few things that you probably weren’t taught.
Directed by Asa Lucander.
