When it comes to what you can and can’t do, the International Space Station doesn’t have a lot of amusements. After all, it’s a pretty small area in which to work. However, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been spending his downtime doing something creative. Basically, he’s become a video blog and Twitter star thanks to his amazing onboard experiments, answering questions and entertaining thousands of people here on earth during his time on the ISS. Now, he’s gone a step farther and created a piece of history. Chris Hadfield has produced the first music video ever shot in space for David Bowie’s hit “Space Oddity” and the video has gone viral. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOC9danxNo
There’s no need to fear a Major Tom-style space disaster for Commander Hadfield; he and his two ISS crewmates (American Tom Marshburn and Russian Roman Romanenko) landed in Kazakhstan after returning to earth in a Russian Soyuz-TMA capsule. Meanwhile, David Bowie and his army of Martian spiders are held at bay for another day.
