Japanese Astronaut Plays Baseball By Himself In Space

Japanese Astronaut Plays Baseball by Himself

During long periods of isolation in outer space, boredom is no doubt a major problem. So how did one Japanese astronaut decide to pass the time? By playing a baseball game all by himself, of course.

Thanks to zero-g conditions, Satoshi Furukawa is able to pitch, hit and catch a ball all by his lonesome. Beats going stir-crazy.

Watch the one-man game of baseball below.
