Wang Yaping will demonstrate what happens in weightlessness, and explain how surface tension affects liquids in that state. Students are expected to gain a deeper understanding of basic physical concepts such as mass, weight and Newton’s Laws of Motion. The other two astronauts will be her teaching assistant and cameraman.
