I hope all of you are doing well. Life is overwhelming at times. The stories on the news are usually quite gloomy. However, the kind actions of people around keep hope alive. We should take some time to sit down and take a deep breath.
Now, if you are into anything and everything space (like me), you might find this video quite enjoyable. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield posted a video on Youtube, a cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity. It has already gone rival with more than 10 million views. Hadfield is an advocate for education and a great role model. He even has an online series to teach adults and children about how astronauts live in space and many subjects related. I recommend checking them out.
I wish I could travel to space and do all the fabulous experiments people like Mr. Hadfield have the opportunity do at work. It must be quite humbling and breath-taking to wake up and see the Earth in its entirety and beauty. Congratulations to those involved in the making of this video, it is a great video. This is the first music video recorded in space.
