If you are an astronaut, and on a mission that requires you to be up in some station for days or even months, there can be times when you don’t do much. There is nothing much to pass your time when you are not amidst a task on-board the station and it can get boring at times. But creativity knocks your head even in zero gravity as one astronaut proved it. Astronaut Koichi Wakata decided to get his creative hat on a-board the International Space Station and made light paintings that you or I cannot make on Earth. Free from any gravity pulling things down, Koichi used a Spiral Top device created by Takuro Osaka which has a tendency to spin around in zero gravity to come up with random patterns. So take a jump and have look at the mesmerizing spiral light paintings created by Koichi Wakata on International Space Station.
