:: adgruntie :: Stunts in Spaaaace!

+ On July 31, cosmonaut Panel Vinogradov will play golf during a six-hour spacewalk on the International Space Station as part of a publicity stunt for golf-club manufacturer Element 21 who is paying the Russian Space Agency. Timed to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the first golf shot in space, Vinogradov will hit a gold-plated golf ball into orbit. It will be the longest drive ever hit, because this ball is expected to travel 2.1 billion miles before it plunges into the Earth's orbit and burns up in three years or four years.
