While many on earth think that space is a scary place, astronauts at the International Space Station indulge in some fun when they’re not particularly busy dissecting the universe. British astronaut Tim Peaks, in fact, plays a music quiz with ‘earthlings’.

Active on Twitter, he posts a question under what he calls #spacerocks quiz for his followers and he even has an award to give to the winner. Reportedly, he has taken 75 soundtracks with him to the space station and every now and then he posts the lyrics of the songs. The first one to identify the name and artist is rewarded.

Not only he keeps himself and his followers busy with the quiz, he keeps posting beautiful pictures of the universe that seems to be his new-found interest.

Peaks and his fellow astronauts Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra even uploaded a video on YouTube wishing people on earth a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year while they share their thoughts on being away from their home planet. (What they do at the end is really cool!).
