- "Truth in Television: In zero gravity, water will form floating spheres. These NASA videosshows a number of visually cool experiments involving them.
- And played for laughs in the Planetes manga: in an omake four-panel strip, Hachi sees a blob of floating hot coffee. Being cute, he sticks a straw in it and slurps it. Hilarity Ensues.
- Demonstrated in the Tintin album in space. (With whisky instead of water, but the same principle applies.)
- And in the novel Simon Black in Space by Ivan Southall when one of the characters attempts to create a bath in zero gravity, and almost drowns in the process."
