Space Hubcap is the first manmade thing to go to space, even before Sputnik 1 in 1957. In an experiment gone wrong just two months before the Sputnik 1 launch, a series of small steel lids have been launched into the air with such speed they left the Earth’s atmosphere and were never seen again.
Astronauts have several tasks when spending time at the International Space Station. For Soviet cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, it was hit a golf ball towards a target for a Golfing company. The target was the whole planet of Earth, but the astronaut still managed to miss the shot several times so now golf balls are floating in space.
