Chinese astronauts delivered a live science lecture from the Tiangong space station.
Astronauts Chen Dong, Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe of China’s Shenzhou 14 flight crew gave a space lecture on Wednesday morning at 3:45 a.m. EDT.
The lecture, which is part of a series known as “Tiangong Class,” comes after two classes which were previously held by the Shenzhou 13 crew in space. 
The three astronauts showcased the working and living conditions of the Chinese space station Wentian experimental module on-orbit, which was launched in July. They demonstrated the capillary effects of liquids in a weightless environment and the vibration behavior of liquid and liquid-solid mixture under the same impact in a microgravity environment.
The third lesson also included fun drinking with a straw, turning wrenches, plant growth research project introductions and interactive exchanges with ground classrooms. 
The lecture aimed to spark the interest of China’s young people in space and science.
