Even the International Space Station's astronauts are blowing off work to watch the World Cup


NASA's Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson, along with German astronaut Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, decided a friendly wager would really send today's World Cup game between the two countries out of this world.

"If the U.S. wins, these guys are going to draw a little U.S. flag on my head," Gerst said. "But I think if Germany wins, these guys should have to shave their heads. It's going to be fun."

The astronauts kept an eye on the score via a jerry-rigged laptop (check it out, below).
