Table Spaceball! - Space Kettle

Table Spaceball!

Table Spaceball is a variation of the classic game of table football, adapted to be played in microgravity, which provide hours of entertainment for astronauts and distract them from the hardships of long space voyages.

Instead of miniature footballers only able to move along the width of the pitch like in regular table football, in Table Spaceball they are able to move freely vertically up and down the height, width and length of the pitch (or “Arena”) by a certain amount, depending on their position. This essentially means that the game can be played in all 3 dimensions fully, which is only possible under microgravity!

This new form of astronaut entertainment was created by Samuel Rayner.
