Super Bowl in Space: How Astronauts Celebrate the Big Game in Orbit1 min read

Super Bowl Sunday is an exciting day for football fans all over the United States, but NASA astronauts in space are also looking forward to the big game.

While astronauts on the International Space Station may not be able to throw a Super Bowl watch party like Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks fans on Earth, that doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in the biggest professional football game of the season. NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio won’t be able to watch the Super Bowl live on Sunday (Feb. 2), but he’s still planning on participating in the football festivities, and he doesn’t want to hear any game-ruining spoilers. You can watch the full sports interview with Mastracchio on Space.com  online.

“Hopefully Houston will uplink a version of it [the Super Bowl] the next day or within a few days and we’ll get to watch it,” Mastracchio told Space.com during a live interview today (Jan. 31). “We just have to be careful that no one tells us the score before we do that.”
