Water is one of the most common necessities. Without it, life wouldn't exist as we know it. Water is special because of its many properties, and though this might not teach you anything new, here are some which are clearly shown in space's low gravity.

Polarity:
Water is a polar molecule. That means that one side of a water molecule has a positive charge while the other has a negative charge. To be specific, the side with the two hydrogen molecules is positive and the side with oxygen is negative. Water's polarity is what allows all its other properties to exist.

Cohesion:
Cohesion is a direct effect of polarity. Because one side of the molecule is positive and the other negative, water molecules attract. Molecules form hydrogen bonds and in this way are able to stay together. This is clearly shown in gif below where the water stays together in a blob. This property allows them to stick together and create something called surface tension.

Surface Tension:
Surface tension is created by cohesion. With the hydrogen bonds keeping the molecules together, a thin film is created on the surface. This is able to support some types of insects. Surface tension can be seen in the gif as the outer surface that wobbles with the water.

Adhesion:
Adhesion is another effect of water's polarity. It allows water molecules to stick to other polar molecules. Just like cohesion, the positive side of water attracts the negative side of another molecule and the negative side attracts the positive. In the gif below it can be seen that the water is attracted to the washcloth and the person's hand.

Capillary Action:
Capillary action occurs due to water's adhesion. Because water's adhesion attracts it to other materials, water tries to touch as much of it as possible. When water is placed in a thin tube made of another polar material, it will seemingly climb up the tube. Capillary action is what allows plants and trees to transport water from the ground into the highest point of the plant.

Universal Solvent:
Water is commonly referred to as the universal solvent. This is because it is able to dissolve more substances than any other liquid. Once again it is due to water's polarity. Because water is polar, it attracts many substances. Not only that, it's pull is so strong that it often ends up breaking the bonds between the other

The Catalogue of Gaffes that forced DNA Pioneer to sell his Nobel Medal

James Watson, the American scientist who was  one of the three recipients of the Nobel prize for the discovery of the double helix of the DNA in 1962, has been forced to sell his prestigious trophy owing to his straying into a realm in which he seemed to have very little experience - politics. 

Fortunately, thanks to the generosity of the Russia's richest man, Mr Watson can keep both the medal and the cash, a staggering $4.1 million. 

Alisher Usmanov, the Russian billionaire bought the medal off him as the highest bidder in an auction and promised to return both the money and the medal to the scientist, now 86, whose reputation has been tarnished beyond repair.

His admirers still wonder why he made those politically-incorrect, insensitive gaffes, which completely eclipsed his immense contribution the world of physiology -  in the twilight of his otherwise remarkable life.

Mr Watson said that he would spend the money on research and promoting education.
