Spiral Top

Light artist Takuro Osaka has created “Spiral Top”, a device that spins through zero gravity space making colorful trails with mounted LEDs in long-exposure photos. Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata tested the Spiral Top aboard the International Space Station in 2009, and recently tweeted more photos of the device spinning through corridors aboard the ISS:
