Watch astronaut play water ping pong in celebration of 300 days in spaceBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 22 January 2016 | Categories: news
When astronaut Scott Kelly went to the International Space Station (ISS), he knew he would be doing so for one full year. While 2015 may have flown by for us on Earth, in Space it must undoubtedly get lonely. As such, why not make the most of zero gravity in order to escape cabin fever while in orbit?
Luckily, Kelly's space follies have been recorded via RED 4K cameras and uploaded to YouTube. The latest one celebrates 300 consecutive days in space and features a solo session of water ping pong. The two ping pong paddles are not the kind you can pick up from Sportsman's Warehouse though, as they've been coated in a special hydrophobic water repellent, thus allowing them to 'bounce' water from one paddle to the other.
While Kelly looks a bit bored in the video, having spent just shy of 10 months up there, we're sure he'll be glad to be heading home to the US sometime in March.
