Americans Defeat Russians in First Space Quidditch Match


Explanation:
A historic first Space
Quidditch match came to a
spectacular conclusion last night as astronaut
Michael Lopez-Alegria caught the
Golden Snitch to give the Americans a hard fought victory over the Russians.

"The Russians used brilliant strategy, but only
NASA
had the T2KQMU (Thunderbolt 2000 Quidditch Maneuvering Unit)," commented
Lopez-Alegria, pictured above squeezing the elusive
Golden Snitch in his left hand.

Happy
April Fools Day
from the folks at
APOD.

In reality, Astronauts
Jeff Wisoff and Lopez-Alegria are
shown space-walking in 2001 October during a
space shuttle mission to help build the
International Space Station.
