Something Wonderful: Space Oddity from the Space Station

Wow! Just wow! Every so often you come across something that reminds you that, with all the old evils of this Earth, we still live in the age of miracles and wonders. This is one of those.

A revised version of David Bowie's Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.

With thanks to Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran, Andrew Tidby and Evan Hadfield for all their hard work.

UPDATE: Alas, it’s likely the last we’ll be hearing from Commander Hadfield from the ISS for awhile. The first-ever Canadian ISS commander turned over command of the ISS to his successor, Expedition 36 Commander Pavel Vinogradov, last night. He returns to Earth aboard a Russian Soyuz capsule tonight between 9:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. EST. -- | Popular Science

The view of the planet from up there is so beautiful, it's hard to imagine that anyone can stand it. I love how hope and wonder-filled his version is.
