For all that guessed that it had something to do with pressure, good one! It's a stainless steel-braided flexible hose that's used in the experiment racks on the Japanese Kibo laboratory module on the International Space Station.

Although I *did* like @davidbean's suggestion that it was a hookah from the Turkish space program enough to take this shot.

A crack pipe made from space-age polymers. Nice.

Can you get us some Area 51 goodies to gaze upon? Cause you've clearly got access to those top secret things.

So that's how the astronauts do it. And they said you couldn't have fire in space.

Let me guess. Black ink in one pen and and red in the other (for edits/redlines, because nobody's yet told you it was "an angry color"). Personally, I go for the '
"inside" carry when wearing polo shirts to preclude pen-lanyard interference.

@greybeard You're dead on about the pen colors. And I keep them on my lanyard so I don't ruin a shirt.

@hale Not sure what you're asking about, but the black circular object is a JBL speaker stand for my iPhone and iPod.

So what's the deal with this water on the moon business. I would have expected some inside information before that hit the masses.
