A wonderful video !
... somewhat piano related as it opens with piano

Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut, arrived back to planet earth yesterday after a 5 month sojourn as the commander of the International Space Station.

Here is Chris singing David Bowie's, Space Oddity, while on board the space station.

I put this video up here for those that might not have come across it otherwise.
I think it's very special , unique and as AJF commented above, Awesome !
It's also the first music video ever recorded from space! His vocals and guitar were recorded on board the space station and the arrangement featuring piano, from earth.
Chris has been doing all sorts of sharing and communications with others during his recent time as commander at the International Space Station.

Enjoy !

Nice video, but is it really Chris Hadfield singing?
I've never heard the original.

Yep, that's Chris singing. The vocals and guitar were recorded on the ISS. The editing and added tracks were engineered in a heavier environment, in collaboration with his son.

There is all sorts of broadcasts from space to be found on YouTube. They are a project of the Canadian Space Agency.
