While the Expedition 40 astronauts have said they don’t have a lot of time for soccer, they still are getting into the spirit of the FIFA World Cup. They’ve now recorded a second part to their popular soccer competition video that ran just as the sporting event began. The new version shows them doing some soccer tricks on the International Space Station, as well as showing off how epic a celebratory dance can be in microgravity.
