2016 was a great year regarding everything. Everyone experienced almost crazy new things this year and like every year there was a new Viral challenge as well. Mannequin Challenge was one of the most viral challenges of 2016. It’s not like ALS Ice bucket challenge as ALS was for a good cause but this challenge is for fun. It’s a challenge for those who can want to stay still for some minutes in order to complete it.
As there are plenty of videos on YouTube but one video broke everyone’s record. A crew of astronauts from International Space Station took this challenge and blew everyone’s mind. Astronaut “Thomas Pesquet” posted this video on his Facebook page. The crew was not on duty due to Sunday, and that is why they thought that it would be better to take this challenge and shock everyone. Although there is no music in the background, but they come up with a Sci-Fi use of microgravity in space. With the help of microgravity, five out of six crew members were able to stay still for some time. The sixth member was holding the camera as required for the challenge.
Here is the video of astronauts completing Mannequin Challenge in a cool way. Have a look:
On Sunday we generally have a day off with the crew and we often have a bit of fun in microgravity. We got the whole International Space Station crew together and took the #MannequinChallenge to new heights. The result is kind of sci-fi spooky don't you think? Dimanche, c'est notre jour de repos et on a le temps de s'amuser un peu avec l'impesanteur… Tout l’équipage s’y est mis pour vous offrir le seul « mannequin challenge » de l’espace et par la même occasion une petite visite de la Station spatiale internationale ! On dirait un mélange de science-fiction et de cinéma d’anticipation, non ?
