Cosmonaut Launches Golf Ball Into Orbit

In a tawdry publicity stunt for a golf club company, a Russian Cosmonaut used a six iron to launch a golf ball into orbit from the International Space Station.

The ball is expected to go tumbling back to Earth in a few days and burn up upon reentry.

It will, no doubt, be the longest drive in history. But where’s the challenge. There were no sand traps, trees or other hazards to avoid.

Although considering that the world is three quarters water, I suppose that water did come into play.
