Here astronaut Andre Kuipers demonstrates fluid dynamics in microgravity. A roughly spherical droplet of water acts as a lens, refracting the image of his face so that it appears upside down. The air bubble inside the droplet refracts the image back to our normal perspective again. (Photo credit: Andre Kuipers, ESA; via Bad Astronomy)
