Golf in space

Tom reports on the golf shot taken by Mikhail Tyurin, one of the cosmonauts on the International Space Station (ISS). NASA TV have a video of the shot (needs RealPlayer) and I must say that it is difficult to see anything. If there had been no audio, I wouldn't have even realised that a golf ball was being hit. Apparently, this intercontinental ballistic golf ball won't cause problems for the ISS or the Shuttle launch in December. I should hope not too.

Happy Thanksgiving to those people who know what it is. I'm told it is a time for food, family and football (presumably the American kind with lots of padding). Sounds like a good holiday to me.
