Nerd House Rocks Special Edition! Astronaut Chris Hadfield Sings Space Oddity

landscape

This is so awesome it just needs to featured here! The first music video done in space. Very appropriately to a David Bowie tune.

To make a long story story  short  Chris Hadfield knew Emm Gryner (she’s playing the piano here), and a decade ago Emm was a back up singer for David Bowie. So when Chris told Emm that he wanted to something different during his stay up on the space  station they decided on a music video. Emm asked David Bowie if he would be okay with the use of his song and he thought it was a great idea.

Here is the result

In 2 days the video has accumulated near 7 million views. Not a bad set of pipes for an astronaut.

the scene at 2:50 takes my breath away. I thought it deserved to be shared
