Video shows the New Year’s celebration aboard the International Space Station.
The ‘Expedition 64’ crew took the opportunity to use the lack of gravity for a reversal in the annual ball drop tradition.
As a result, video shows a ball slowly float to the top of the station’s ceiling.
The crew took New Year’s Day as a rare vacation day in space.
The Nasa astronauts also got to celebrate the start of 2021 — 16 times, since the space station orbits the earth every 90 minutes.
