Chess in Space: Space Station vs Mission Control

NASA astronaut Greg Chamitoff and fellow crew are currently on their second game of Chess vs all the mission control centers that support the space station orbiting Earth at around five miles per second.

The centers take turns making moves against Greg as he comes within radio contact with them. Greg already won the first game, and it looks like he’s winning the second, too.
