    Have you ever seen tricks with fidget spinner in space? Can you imagine them in gravity free conditions?

    A video published on YouTube shows a great example demonstrating Newton's laws in motion.  

    NASA astronauts showed how a fidget spinner spins under zero-gravity conditions. The video shows how astronauts not only twisted the device in various ways, but also rotated around their axis. Tricks on the ISS were demonstrated by Joseph M. Acaba, Randolph Bresnik, Mark T. Vande Hei and Paolo Nespoli.

    Earlier in Japan, the most spin-rotating spinner in the world was created.

    Fidget spinners became very popular toys in April 2017. Due to its popularity among  kids, fidget spinners were even banned in some schools and universities around the world.
