So... this is both weird and fascinating, and now I kind of want to find an excuse to move my WIP into space so I can write about it.

What happens if you cry in zero gravity.

So gross.

Although I guess it's better than throwing up in space. :tongue

I am, indeed, intrigued and grossed out at the same time.

OMG don't show the throwing up in space gif!

I wonder what they put in his eye to make it tear like that?

And I'd have thought the tears would just float as droplets. Is it the tension of the liquid that keeps it stuck to his face like that?

That is really awesome. Never thought to wonder about the consequences of crying in space. ("There's no crying in baseball! ...I mean space.") Thanks for sharing!

How are you supposed to get proper emotional closure on anything, if you can't properly cry in space?

That was the creepiest cry, ever.
