He also dispenses some pretty excellent dating advice re: physics and yo-yos. All-in-all, even more evidence that Pettit is one of the coolest astronauts to ever orbit Earth aboard the ISS.


Via Physics Central's always awesome Physics Off the Sphere series.

I suspect that talking about the physics of yo-yos won't impress Mrs Krabappel.
