Why can’t open vessels be used to store liquid on a manned spacecraft in free flight?

The liquid cannot be poured into the vessel in the usual way due to its lack of weight. The vessel can only be filled from a reservoir with elastic walls. With any, even a very small, push, the liquid body will turn into a ball, which, when colliding with the walls, will be crushed into smaller balls floating in the atmosphere of the ship.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
