NASA Astronaut Don Pettit uses his off-duty time to practice his microgravity yo-yo skills in this video from PhysicsCentral.
My favourite quote: “It’s important to understand the physics of your recreational activities… you can impress people by talking about the physics of your yo-yo and if you are a guy, just think — you can impress gals by talking about the physics of how your yo-yo works,” Petit says in the video. “There’s gonna be a class of gals that won’t be interested in that and you won’t impress them, but then those are the kind of gals you don’t want to be around.”
