This video is going to own the Internet. As he prepares to leave ISS & return home, astronaut Chris Hadfield records his version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.
I don’t often post other people’s work on my photojournal but I was moved by this. I’m always appreciative when someone creates something that inspires me to think that I’ve been in the presence of magic. What this astronaut did is special, and despite the long drag of days it made me glad that I was alive.
I’ve known Chris for years through tumblr. We finally met personally a few months ago when he was in town from NYC. He is a photographer who shoots film exclusively. He took the bus down from NYC to hang with Al and they both joined us on our day trip to Harpers Ferry.
I’ve made a good friend through him, his best friend Al. My life is already made better by knowing them.
