Fidget Spinner Spin, But This Time In Space: Watch the Video

by Neha Monga

We have seen fidget spinners almost everywhere, in buses, on trains, children playing with fidget spinners in parks and now they are in space.

NASA’s Randy Bresnik posted a video on social media showing astronauts on the space station having the time of their lives playing with the popular toy. The video features Randy Bresnik with his fellow astronauts Mark T. Vande Hei, Joseph Acaba and Paolo Nespoli taking turns playing with a NASA-branded fidget spinner while also spinning themselves in the gravity-free environs of the International Space Station.

The video which was posted by Bresnik on Instagram read: “A fidget spinner in space! How long does it spin? I’m not sure, but it’s a great way to experiment with Newton’s laws of motion.”

Further he wrote, “Allowing the fidget spinner to float reduces the bearing friction by permitting the rate of the central ring and outer spinner to equalize, and the whole thing spins as a unit.”

There you go… a science lesson, courtesy of NASA.

The fidget spinner craze is almost over and even if you’re sick and tired of fidget spinners, the video is a pretty awesome thing to watch.
