It seems that World Cup fever has spread out of this world. Astronauts on the International Space Station are following the F.IF.A. World Cup championship.
European Space Agency Astronaut Alexander Gerst of Germany offered a non-partisan message of encouragement to participants in the 2014 World Cup being held in Brazil.
One wonders if this good will holds for the Germany-Team USA match up in Recife on June 26th.
In the meanwhile, the ISS Astronauts showed their soccer skills in space.
