Not so long ago we mentioned that a Japanese astronaut would be experimenting with the physics of objects in space, and that included flying paper airplanes and boomerangs. This video, released by JAXA, shows the result of Takao Doi's boomerang experiment in the International Space Station's Harmony. So, does it come back?! You'll have to watch the video for yourself and see!

Implications - Though society's advancement and obsession with technology is irrefutable, consumers are still naturally drawn to the more humanistic qualities of these discoveries and find solace in familiar activities such as playing with boomerangs. Companies should emphasize humanistic interactions between a product and a consumer for marketing success, especially if the product is new and foreign to anything that's currently on the market.
