  • Final frontier fidgeting Astronauts perform spinner tricks in space

The fidget spinner craze is all but over, but astronauts aboard the International Space Station are only now experiencing the joys of the toy.

NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, who is now aboard the ISS, has shared an incredible video of him playing around with a fidget spinner in space.

Yeah, read that headline again: fidget spinners are actually extremely cool.

.

Fidget spinners are colorful, handheld, pocket-sized toys made of plastic or metal with a ball bearing in the middle that helps spin the outside weights.

Many videos with the unique fidget spinner tricks are making their way to the internet lately but the latest video uploaded by NASA beats them all.

Fidget spinners' 15 minutes may be up here on Earth but in space, their popularity has just begun. The current team shares all kinds of awesomeness from amazing, high-resolution pics of Earth landmarks to clips of them eating pudding in zero gravity.

Us normies don't have much access to zero-gravity, which is why we have astronauts out in space to do this kind of thing for us. "I'm not sure, but it's a great way to experiment with Newton's laws of motion", writes the astronaut on Instagram. How long will it take to spin?
