"The spinning droplet was like a miniature centrifuge: Higher-density water was flung away from the spin axis; lower-density air bubbles sank toward it. Scientists here on Earth are thinking about spinning entire spaceships to provide artificial gravity for astronauts. Space station shower droplets are a fun model for that grander project. After his shower, Don wondered what would happen if he spun water droplets containing not lightweight air bubbles, but instead particles like tea leaves and sugar grains, which are denser than water..."
