On July 31, 1992, a Tom Kuhn SB2 yo-yo was sent aloft by NASA for a real around-the-world ride on the Atlantis Space Shuttle. It was employed as a prop for an educational video. Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman put it through zero G manoeuvres including slow motion yo-yoing.
The yo-yo traveled 3,321,007 miles and went around the world 127 times (!) before returning to earth on August 9.
