(CBS News) I'm sure like myself, most of you probably have some pretty random and bizarre questions hit you from time to time. Luckily we live an era where a quick Google search will often answer most of these queries. However, if you've ever happened to wonder what yo-yos might look like in space, you've been out of luck... until now. Can you guess where this post is going?
That's right - to space! NASA astronaut Don Pettit recently decided to take a little of his off-duty time to demonstrate his "microgravity yo-yo skills" and post it on YouTube for all of us to see. And it turns out that when you drop gravity from the equation, you end up with a whole new array of fun tricks to show off (and "around the world" takes on a whole new meaning). A big triple-rainbow salute goes out to Don Pettit from all of us here at The Feed for this fun and fascinating demonstration with a little physics education thrown in for good measure!
