Great experiment - don't try at home?

Undoubtedly you've always wondered what would happen if you'd put an Alka Selzer or a Berocca tab to a ball of water.

Yes, the kind of ball of water you'd get in zero gravity. Well, now you can stop losing sleep over this one, as they tried this in the International Space Station.

Being an astronaut is the coolest thing there is anyway, and they often try to play it down by saying that they just do scientific experiments up there and it's all serious work. Well, doing scientific experiments is the second coolest thing there is, and with these kinds of experiments, the combination sounds really good.

Only one thing remains. They should try putting some Mentos into a ball of coke...
