This Video Really Is All That

Posted May 14th, 2013

So everyone and their mothers have probably seen this music video of Space Oddity (by David Bowie) made by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield and his International Space Station friends, and posted it to Facebook. As I understand it, he actually recorded the guitar and vocals in space, and they lay down some extra tracks on Earth. But the video was shot in the Space Station on his last “day” (whatever that means in space) there. What a strange thing it must be to make art in space.¬†And how cool!

 

And the other crazy thing is that this guy was the commander of the Space Station while he was there. Fantastic!*

*unless this is all a hoax by the Canadian Government.
