I was about to make fun of someone. I thought the video was someone throwing a boomerang in outer space...

Lol at Maddog. But yea, i was thinking the same thing. of COURSE it would return to the user in zero gravity! it should, in fact, work better, due to a lack of downward pull towards the earth/any large body.

Sorry to anyone who already typed this, i dont read all of the comments prior to my post, i think you all would understand that. :P

in a airless void it would not return because for a boomerang to work it must have air, which seems to not be present in hard vacuums.
