Japanese astronaut finds boomerangs do come back in space

JOHNSON SPACE CENTER, Texas -- Japanese astronaut Takao Doi has thrown a boomerang in space and found, to the surprise of many, that it does come back.
The 53-year-old conducted an experiment aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on Tuesday, Japanese time, to see whether boomerangs fly back in space.
Many had predicted that it wouldn't but, Doi confirmed that after finishing his duties on the eighth day, he threw it and it did come back.
