FIRST GAME OF BADMINTON IN SPACE HELD ON INT'L SPACE STATION

While the International Space Station (ISS) is an important part of our ongoing research into all things outer space, there’s no reason the astronauts and scientists can’t have a little bit of fun too. The first game of Badminton in space was recently held featuring collaborative teams of Russian, American, and Japanese Space Station residents. Badminton in space was a resounding success, with the shuttlecock “seen zooming back and forth a spacious ISS module.” The two teams in the match consisted of a duo of a Russian cosmonaut and American astronaut, playing against a duo of another Russian cosmonaut accompanied by a Japanese astronaut.
