Space Oddity, by David Bowie was performed in space and there's a great and touching video clip made... by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.

No, not yet, but I did get the idea that he's quite an artistic kind of guy (and that he has some 17 videos I believe in youtube, which I intend to watch once I find some time).

Earth is flat? What about his singing?

He also wrote a song and hundreds and thousands of school children across Canada sang along with him. http://teachingkidsnews.com/2013/05/07/c...schoolchildren/ I've watched a couple of the videos now. It's mind blowing.

Man, I hope that landing in Kazakhstan isn't quite as abrupt as it looks in the video. This bunch did make it back okay a few hours ago. Although it's pretty routine by now, I bet falling out of the sky that way in a tin can still gets pulses going a bit.

Thanks!
I would love to see a real piano floating around in zero gravity. Must be quite a sight.

I just noticed Nikolas we both put up this video on PW recently - I placed it as an OT thread on the piano forum.

For those that haven't viewed this... do....!


Wonderful video and lovely version of David Bowie's , "Space Oddity".

First ever music video from space, and Chris pulls it off with style , character and delight.
Chris Hadfield , Canadian astronaut, was the commander of the International Space Station the past 5 months , until his return to Earth on May 13th.
