Astronauts play football in zero gravity on ISS (Video)

Few athletes get the chance to play soccer at the World Cup, but even fewer get a chance to play the game in outer-space.

In a video message from orbit, German crew member Alexander Gerst wished all teams and fans in Brazil “peaceful games.”

His American colleague Reid Wiseman added: “Have fun, play hard, and we’ll be watching on the International Space Station.”

Gerst, Wiseman and station commander Steve Swanson of NASA also showed off their football skills in low gravity, displaying some impressive feats in the video that players down on Earth might be envious of.

Along with the German and two Americans, there are three Russians on the space station right now: All their countries are represented at the World Cup.
