VIDEO: Ping Pong IN SPACE!
Capt. Scott Kelly apparently has so much free time on his trip around the Earth that he is playing zero gravity ping pong with water...
Scott Kelly, American astronaut currently 300 days into his year-long trip on the International Space Station, just uploaded a video to the Earth-interwebz that shows him brushing up on his micro-gravity ping pong skills. We can only assume that the ISS has an upcoming tournament or something that warrants such a prodigious waste of tax payers resources. Not really though.
Using a tiny globule of water and two Teflon coated paddles, Captain Kelly plays the first, as far as we know, liquid based solo ping pong match IN SPACE!
Check out the video below for all the space table-sport weirdness.
