Commander Chris Hadfield

I’ve been following the Tweets of Commander Chris Hadfield, commander of Expedition 35 on the International Space Station with growing awe. It’s been an incredible personal insight into both the world of an astronaut, and our world, as seen from his photographs of Earth from space.

He’s about to leave the Space Station, and today he posted a farewell video, which just about blew my mind. It’s a revised version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Hadfield on board the International Space Station.

How wonderful. For some reason it actually made me well up a bit. x

I’ve been following Commander Chris Hadfield on Facebook since early February, his photos are stunning! I really hope he gets a book deal.
