This is so beautiful. I am bawling.
Chris Hadfield sings “Space Oddity” in the first music video in space
Tomorrow, Commander Chris Hadfield bids farewell to the International Space Station, meaning we won’t get our usual dose of his tweets and videos sent from space. But he’s signing off with a little David Bowie.
Hadfield’s son Evan writes:
He returns home in Soyuz in the early morning of the 14th, and this is his final video from Station. It is also, coincidentally, the first real music video ever recorded in space.
We’ve seen Hadfield strumming on his guitar up in the ISS, but this is a full music video—”Space Oddity” filmed in the best possible setting. Commander Hadfield, you are a world treasure. We wish you a safe journey back to Earth, but wonder whatever we shall do without your ISS reports to brighten our days.
