In this video by the Canadian Space Agency, astronaut Chris Hadfield can be seen performing a simple science experiment- wringing out water on the International Space Station. 

Considering objects float inside the spacecraft due to microgravity, what would happen if you squeezed a cloth soaked in water? 

Would the water float in the form of droplets?

The experiment was designed by two students- Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner- who had won a national science contest held by the agency. 

Their winning experiment was on surface tension in space using a wet washcloth.
