Ok, space flight isn't exactly permie, but Chris Hadfield is doing so much to share the astronaut's perspective of the little blue ball with it's tiny atmosphere..our shared and only home. And that vision is so valuable right now.

Test pilot, astronaut, commander of the international space station...and at the same time he's writing lyrics and peforming. I find him really inspirational

is somebody singing? I.S.S. orbital performance

Wow thats really cool.

How the heck did they get audio from the ISS (going 18,000 mph) to synch up with the performers on Earth?


Just last month I watched the ISS fly over a few times. looked as bright as Venus .

It really is something. I listen to CBC Radio1 from 5:30 to 18:00 every day and heard the song's world radio debut today on Q with Jian Gomeshi, it was nice. Chris Hadfield wrote the lyrics and asked his friend (whose name escapes me) from The Bare Naked Ladies to compose the music. Apparently the earth portion of the recording was done separately from the space part and they were mixed back here on terra firma. I think that Hadfield is doing a great job at informing us earthlings of the fragility of our home. He's posting pictures constantly on his twitter feed. They are really worth checking out (google his name), his comments also are very much part of his educational endeavours.

Here's one he shot of my city. South is up. Can anyone identify it? (I'm really hoping it only looks that bright because the ground is covered with snow)
