STS072-315-034 (11-20 Jan. 1996) --- During off-duty time aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, astronauts Daniel T. Barry (left) and Koichi Wakata join on the middeck for an in-space version of a Japanese game called "Go". Because of microgravity, the usual rock-like pieces that are moved about on the board by each player had to give way to tiny stick-on pieces. Wakata represents Japan's National Space Development Agency (NASDA).
