Astronaut to drive golf ball from ISS
Although this article is from March, 2006, there must be a new twist to it as this story was featured on CBS radio's top of the hour news yesterday.
 
http://www.newscientistspace.com/article.ns?id=dn8791
 
Although it doesn't mention what direction he will hit the ball, retrograde makes the most sense as its orbit will decay the fastest.

(Taken from a post on Google Group Planetquest)
 
Look, up in the sky - it's another solar system!
 
PLANETQUEST) -- If you've ever looked up on a clear winter night, you've probably seen it: Pollux, also known as Beta Geminorum, one of the brightest and most familiar stars in the night sky. And now, scientists have discovered that it harbors a secret: a hidden planet, about three times the size of Jupiter.  
 
The discovery of the new planet, dubbed Beta Genorium b, was announced recently by two separate planet-finding teams, one led by Sabine Reffert and the other by Artie Hatzes, both of Germany. Both teams found the planet using the Doppler (or radial velocity) method, which infers the existence of a planetary companion from its gravitational tug on the host star. The new planetary system is located about 34 light-years away in the constellation Gemini.

In other planet-discovery news, astronomers have announced the discovery of a fourth planet orbiting the star Mu Arae (a.k.a. HD 160691), located in the constellation Ara. The planet is about half the mass of Jupiter and orbits the star at a distance similar to the distance at which the Earth orbits the sun. Mu Arae is the second extrasolar system known to host four planets.  
 
http://planetquest1.jpl.nasa.gov/atlas/atlas_skymap.cfm?Star=128  
 
The recent discoveries bring the total number of known extrasolar planets around normal, sun-like stars to 193.  
 
http://planetquest.jpl.nasa.gov/Planet_Finder/planetfinder.html  
 
*my own info*
Mu Arae is only 41 Lyr away.  With current technology it is potential possible for us to send a probe to this stellar system taking approx. 200 Yrs to reach it.  and another 41 Yrs before recieving data from it.
