Russian astronauts plan to hit a golf ball into orbit from the International Space Station.

And there’s a Canadian connection:

The plan is part of a commercial deal between the Russian space agency and Element 21 Golf Company, based in Toronto, Canada.

NASA has to approve the plan, which some experts fear could create a hazard to the space station on subsequent orbits. Other experts discount that notion.

What I want to know is, does this affect the astronaut’s handicap?

    Yes, we still don’t see NASA sending tourists into space, do we?

    For a bunch of ex-communists, the Russians seem to have embraced the possibilities for the commercialization of space faster and more broadly than their capitalist counterparts…
