Awesome Sauce Music Friday! Chris Hadfield is My Space Crush Edition
Stop it. Stop being so damn awesome Chris Hadfield. I can’t take it anymore.
Oh, this is Awesome Sauce Music Friday. Thanks for popping in.
We won’t be seeing any more of Commander Chris Hadfield’s awesome space science videos or photos from the International Space Station. Evidently, as of May 14th, he’s once again an Earth-dweller. This week’s music post is Hadfield’s final video from space, at least for a while. He is, quite appropriately, singing “Space Oddity” by David Bowie. It’s been making the rounds on the Interwebz this week, but it’s just so epic that I had to share it here.
According to io9, Hadfield’s son, Evan, had this to say:
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.
Guys! It’s a music video! From space! The future is awesome.
