Anniversary of MTA Record Throw

On this day in 2006, the record time for Maximum Time Aloft (MTA) was set....by an astronaut. Christer Fuglesang brought a Frisbee to the European Space Station and set the MTA record of 20.52 seconds. Wind was obviously not a factor, but he did use some breath during the record.

Skip ahead to 2:30 to view the practice throw (or let-go) and the subsequent record throw.

WFDF recognized this out-of-the-world flying disc record event as its own MTA category - "Galactic MTA."

The current MTA World Record Holder - 16.72 seconds - on earth's land is Don "Sauce" Cain who enjoys wearing a hat signifying his WRH achievement.
