International Space Station astronauts take mannequin challenge all the way to space
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, there’s no doubt that you have not heard of or seen a mannequin challenge.
The astronauts aboard the International Space Station decided to take the mannequin challenge to new heights — all the way to space.
Thomas Pesquet, a pilot aboard the International Space Station, posted the video to Twitter on Dec. 29, and since then it has racked up more than 11,700 retweets and 19,500 likes.
Pesquet, who is on a six-month mission on the ISS, tweeted that they got the “whole crew” to do the mannequin challenge. The video shows five of the six crew members participating — and it is just too good.
In a Facebook post, Pesquet explained that the crew usually has Sundays off, so they decided to experiment with microgravity.
“The result is kind of sci-fi spooky, don’t you think?” the post read.
Goodbye 2016, we will miss you and the #MannequinChallenge.
