Chris Hadfield's Space Oddity

The Canadian Cosmonaut Chris Hadfield stayed in orbit in the space station for about five months. Time came for him to be replaced. Before he leave he chose to play and sing all by himself the famous Bowie's hit of 70's "Space Oddity "
Great idea of him!! don't you agree ?His way is more than satisfactory.And think about : In a couple of decades from now this video will be the best memory to be shown and description to be told for his grandchildren , of how he passed his unique five months in the station ..
Here it is ..


Ground control to major Tom 
Ground control to major Tom 
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on 
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight) 
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four) 
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you 

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade 
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear 
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare 

This is major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door 
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way 
And the stars look very different today 
Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world 
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do 

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still 
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go 
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows 
Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there's something wrong 
Can you hear me, major Tom? 
Can you hear me, major Tom? 
Can you hear me, major Tom? 
Can you... 
Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon 
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do


Lyrics | David Bowie lyrics - Space Oddity lyrics

AND HERE IS THE AMAZING PHOTO ALBUM OF THE CANADIAN ASTRONAUT
