What the Boss Likes – A real astronaut singing “A Space Oddity” in space

Here is Commander Chris Hadfield (Canada) singing David Bowie’s A Space Oddity (with a few words changed) at the International Space Station.


All done thanks to the hard work of science.


I first heard A Space Oddity riding in the back of my parents’ car when I was around 11 or so.  I thought it was so sad and I couldn’t ask my parents about it because they’d have no idea what the heck I was talking about.   🙂

  1. Bravo!! I got goosebumps.

    I remember my dad sitting with us, like another little kid in awe, as we watched the first steps being taken on the moon.


    1. Oh and if you want a good fiction book that considers the problems and perks of living in space, I recommend “Space Doctor” by Lee Corey (long out of print). It has a lot of stuff I never thought of, like how it’s a real problem trying to do CPR in zero-g since all you do is bounce off each other.
