This video features actornaut "Kate Rubins", with her very visible long hair as usually spread up to demonstrate "microgravity" (really, what's wrong with chignons? bonnets? clips? keeping your hair short for the occasion? And who cleans the hair you lose from the instruments?)
Once again, in answer to the pathetic questions of the clueless interviewer, here we watch the actornaut stating that they are conducting a lot of "experiments" on "fluid behaviour" (~ 4:00). Seriously, "experiments on fluid behavior"? These are words said a zillion times in basically all similar interviews... I guess the actornauts are instructed to say this, lest they should incur in some scientific blunder?
In fact atornauts never enter into the details of any experiment, they never even get as close as to the naming the experiments.
However, all of these alleged experiments are listed on the NASA website, probably imagined by some creative losers who actually studied a bit. But why would the crew on board, who is supposed to have actually conducted these experiments, be so evasive?
And by the way, are these experiments well presented, well described on the NASA website? You be the judge, I just clicked on a couple of pages where the word fluid was mentioned, and I didn't have the impression of seriousness you would expect:
Science Results for Everyone
Whole lotta shaking going on. This investigation created bridges between liquids to observe how fluids move in microgravity, where the absence of gravity allows formation of larger, longer bridges...

Here's experiment 911, which, I admit, I picked only for the number (it's an Italian experiment, on radiation exposure):
"Radiation exposure represents one of the greatest risks to humans traveling on exploration missions beyond low Earth orbit" Wait: did they ask Leon Musk, who just stated that "radiation in space is not a big deal"?
more gems from the boring video:
"tell us how you felt during launch"
"blah blah blah, it's very incredible that we launch human beings into space" ~2:40
Notice how she keeps looking down and to the right, as if she was fishing from the recesses of her brain the images to lend credibility to her hollow, lying words.
As a reminder:
Looking to Their Right = Auditory Thought (Remembering a song)
Looking to Their Left = Visual Thought (Remembering the color of a dress)
Looking Down to Their Right = Someone creating a feeling or sensory memory (Thinking what it would be like to swim in jello)
Looking Down to Their Left = Someone talking to themselves

More about this particular actornaut from wickedpedia:
She analyzed the mechanism of HIV integration, including several studies of HIV-1 Integrase inhibitors and genome-wide analyses of HIV integration patterns into host genomic DNA. She obtained her Ph.D. from Stanford University and, with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rubins and colleagues developed the first model of smallpox infection. She also developed a complete map of the poxvirus transcriptome and studied virus-host interactions using both in-vitro and animal model systems.
Rubins accepted a Fellow/Principal Investigator position at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research (MIT/Cambridge, Massachusetts) and headed a lab of researchers studying viral diseases that primarily affect Central and West Africa. Work in the Rubins Lab focused on poxviruses and host-pathogen interaction as well as viral mechanisms for regulating host cell mRNA transcription, translation and decay. In addition, she conducted research on transcriptome and genome sequencing of filoviruses (Ebola and Marburg) and Arenaviruses (Lassa Fever) and collaborative projects with the U.S. Army to develop therapies for Ebola and Lassa viruses.
...and now she studies "fluid behaviour" "in space".
But actually this makes the interview even more incongruous, since just a few days earlier this article came out on NASA: One Billion Base Pairs Sequenced on the Space Station, alleging that actornaut Rubins worked/is working at this experiment on DNA, which has nothing to do with fluid behaviour.
Meanwhile, her clueless interviewer is "Sex and relationships" editor (i.e. yet another Censor hard at work for the urgent enactment of the destruction of the family) at Cosmopolitan, see here.
