Gameboys… Innnnnn… Spaaaace

This may look like a regular old Gameboy but there’s something “stellar” about it: it flew into space and returned with Russian kosmonaut Aleksandr A. Serebrov. Serebrov brought the game with him to the International Space Station and it played it as they orbited the Earth over 3,000 times in 192 days. You could say, if you were of the sort that made puns, that this Gameboy is out of this world!

Quoth Serebrov:

“Like all cosmonauts, I love sport. My particular favorites are football and swimming. During flight, in rare minutes of leisure, I enjoyed playing Game Boy.”

The Gameboy is expected to sell for about $2000 at auction tonight. If it came with Super Mario Land I might have picked it up, but just Tetris? Come on, space people!
