In space, if no-one sees you freeze, did it happen? The Mannequin Challenge has had school kids, athletes, and presidential candidates posing like mannequins for the camera. Never before has the internet meme happened more than 200 miles in the sky.
Thomas Pesquet, a French astronaut at the International Space Station, has tweeted footage of himself and fellow crew members taking part in the Mannequin Challenge.

In one part of the Mannequin Challenge clip an astronaut pretends to take a picture of one her colleagues. Other crew members can be seen pretending to fix things.
The crew usually has the day off on Sundays, so they had a little fun with microgravity, Pesquet explained in a Facebook post. “The result is kind of sci-fi spooky don’t you think?” he wrote.
