In the name of STEM education , the children's television network is launching a publicity campaign that includes placing a package of slime in a SpaceX Dragon capsule and flying it to the orbiting laboratory this week. The slime became famous for drenching unwitting competitors during Nickelodeon game shows such as "Double Dare" in the s.
The network says it's sending slime to the space station for educational purposes — and to spread the fun for a new generation.
He said the astronauts will capture video of how the slime moves in microgravity, and the material will be used to develop a curriculum for young students that could roll out as soon as September, Machles told CNN Business.
Scientists have long known how water behaves in space: It forms hovering blobs that can be slurped up with a straw mid-air.
