Just read this on Spaceflight Now!

In the morning "execute package" of instructions and timeline changes uplinked to the astronauts, mission control passed along a few tongue-in-cheek ideas for spending an off-duty day in space:

Good morning, Discovery. Since today is an off-duty day for you, the planning shift team has come up with a few ideas* to help you pass the time:
1. Who can toss the laptop the furthest down the station before it bounces off the wall (of course, we would appreciate it if you use Station assets for this one).

2. Arm wrestling: Big [robot] arm vs. little arm, David and Goliath II, the battle begins.

3. Boom toss - toss the [robot arm inspection] boom between arms (just don't tell the Canadians if you lose it).

And so on...


I do like the idea of chucking a laptop around on the ISS as a way to relax! Its nice to see someone has a sense of humor!

I put $20 on the astronaut in the arm wrestling competition.

Heck, I'll give the Astronaut $100 if his arm does'nt get broken.
