The Japanese seem to have the most fun aboard the ISS, making space sushi and taking Twitpics. Now, Japanese astronaut Satoshi Furukawa has accomplished what so many only children on Earth have unsuccessfully attempted: playing baseball by himself. In this video, shot aboard the ISS during missions 28 and 29, the JAXA astronaut throws a few pitches, hits them with a tiny bat, and even manages to get himself out.
We're really hoping Furukawa doesn't break any windows playing ball in the house.
You know you have nothing better to do when...
In space, no one can hear a tree fall in the forest.
Nek Minit. Vital communications equipment damaged by flying person.
Im foreseeing giant zero g sports games. LOL

This is soooo funny!
>Im foreseeing giant zero g sports games. LOL
Yeah! Quidditch could be one of them!
He didn't purvay much athleticism. For his sake, ill assume he is still getting used to the conditions.
1.) How oh, how will he explain that broken space window as he epitaph is said over his sucked destroyed body pulled into space?
2.) Stupid is as stupid does.
3.) Gee, I do not know why we can't get more funding for ISS, space shuttle and other space programs?
4. Hey Japanese gentleman, guess what? Your fly is open. I suggest you close you zipper and stop playing with you ball and bat.
Science sees no further than what it can sense.
Religion sees beyond the senses.
Now that's some slow pitch baseball!
I can see the Headlines "ISS destroyed by foul tip!"
"A foul tip struck on the international space station during a bout with boredom resulted in catastrophic damage to the station's orbital control systems. This caused the ISS's orbit to break down. It is expected to reenter the atmosphere and attain landfall near Kyoto, Japan sometime within the next few days".
