    Japanese astronaut tests 'flying carpet' in space

    A Japanese astronaut has tested a 'flying carpet' in outer space.

    Koichi Wakata also showed how difficult it is to do something as simple as folding laundry and using eye drops as part of a series of zero-gravity challenges submitted by the public.

    To test his magic carpet, he stood on a white sheet before gliding smoothly through a cabin of the International Space Station, as if snowboarding, which can be seen in a video clip posted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa).

    "I flew on this magic carpet by using adhesive tape so that the soles of my feet stayed on it," the 45-year-old astronaut revealed, speaking into a microphone during what appeared at times like a variety show.

    The experiment was part of 16 offbeat tasks selected from ideas sent to the space agency by hundreds of members of the Japanese public, from nursery school pupils to a 90-year-old man.

    Tackling another challenge, Mr Wakata showed how to use eye drops in zero gravity, squeezing out a tiny ball of liquid and letting it perch at the tip of the container before carefully bringing it to his eye.

    He also handled the awkward task of folding laundry in zero gravity, struggling with a shirt and then, for added difficulty, the floating arms and legs of a blue space overall.

    He performed the tasks in the Japanese laboratory Kibo (Hope) of the ISS on May 15, having also performed challenges in April, including push-ups.
