Astronauts Lose Their Hair Over World Cup Wager

Astronaut Alexander Gerst of Germany (top) begins shaving the head of U.S. astronaut Reid Wiseman aboard the International Space Station on June 26. Wiseman gambled his hair on the United States beating Germany in their World Cup match in Recife, Brazil, that day, but Germany pulled out a 1–0 victory. The result meant Gerst didn’t have to have a U.S. flag drawn on his head.

The astronauts were able to follow the action in Brazil after Wiseman called down to Mission Control during lunch and asked that the game be linked up to the station.

U.S. astronaut Steve Swanson joined Wiseman in the bet and also lost his hair to Gerst’s razor. The astronauts could console themselves that even with the loss, the U.S. team has advanced out of the World Cup’s group stage. Wiseman found another benefit to the situation: The next morning, he tweeted, “It was nice to wake up this morning and not worry about my hair. There isn’t any.”
