Then, at 11.57am Sydney time, he made his one-handed shot. NASA had been nervous about the stunt, with engineers concerned that a fouled shot could send the ball smashing into the space station, or hitting a space walker.

The space agency predicted the ball would circle the Earth for about three days before falling back into the atmosphere and burning up.
