With Elon Musk and Richard Branson and others fighting it out to see who can get the first tourists into space it will only be a matter of time before we take the Olympics there. What events might take place in a Space Olympics competition we wondered? And you told us…

[The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6am EDT] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag game. @AFrikkinHashtag [say it out loud] is South Africa’s #1 Hashtag game and is always a lot of fun. The F.L.O.P. [or Fish List Of Prizeworthyness] is the collection of some of the best tweets from each week’s game and is what all seriously comedic Hashtaggers aspire to…]

This week it was time for a bit of Swedish flavour as @Saga_Says joined The UnNamed Ones to co-host the gravity out of this game.

Saga hit the ground running, or at least jumping in slow motion in a big ole spacesuit:
