WATCH: Astronauts celebrate World Cup, play soccer on Space Station
The World Cup is now the Space Cup. SPACE SOCCER.
World Cup fever is extending to outerspace.
And spacesoccer is looking like the most fun sport since Calvinball.
American badasses/astronauts Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson, as well as German badass/astronaut Alexander Gerst, are checking out the Cup from 230 miles away -- above our planet's atmosphere.
Somehow, 230 miles actually seems closer than I thought the International Space Station would be docked. Anyway, these chaps are going to be floating and functioning to better the human race throughout the Cup; they'll be stationed on the ISS until the fall.
They're making the most of it.
