Chess in outer space

Astronaut Woody Hoburg, a chess enthusiast, is currently on the International Space Station (ISS) with his team. Amid their dense schedule, they manage to find some time for chess. Hoburg plays a remote game against the control centre in Houston and sometimes against his Russian colleague Sergey Prokopyev. Never has it been so important for the pieces to be magnetic. | Photos: NASA
