What happens if you cry in space?

Well, the tears don’t fall. And you’ll want a handkerchief, says Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield.

“It just forms a ball on my eyes,” he says. “So if you keep crying, you’re just going to end up with a bigger and bigger ball of water in your eye.”

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Watch Hadfield demonstrate.
