Commander Chris Hadfield Sings Space Oddity
You may have heard of this video - perhaps on the evening news. Now former International Space Station (ISS) Commander Chris Hadfield, well known as a music lover, singer and musician, to say nothing of his prolific Tweeting and sharing of photos shot aboard the ISS, recorded his own interpretation of David Bowie's iconic Space Oddity song in the form of a music video, in space, entirely aboard the ISS, before handing over command of the space outpost and returning to earth.
As we post this on 14 May 2013, the video has been viewed nearly 7 million times on YouTube. There are also some 30,000 comments. It seems to have gone a wee bit viral.
