Space Oddity

Colonel Chris Hadfield has to be one of the coolest people ever. A great leader. I admire what he’s done for mankind and am in awe of what can be accomplished when we set our minds to it.

There are no borders in space.

I love watching the ISS pass overhead as it orbits the earth, imagining the astronauts in it and what they’re seeing. If you’ve never done it, check the schedule here and watch it on a clear night. Absolutely amazing!


Here’s Colonel Hadfield covering David Bowie’s Space Oddity from OUTER SPACE earlier this week!

  1. I agree with you Liz on Colonel Hadfield, he has brought a lot of energy to his chosen profession and most importantly has shared it with the world. I think he has changed the thinking of several school kids about the field of space & engineering.

    • Good point Mary. He’s made it so personal, attainable. It’s wonderful to think that kids are dreaming big because of what he’s done – and how he’s done it. I heard a radio interview not long ago with his son Evan – who helped a lot with the social networking. So touching.
