Space oddity

I love Chris Hadfield’s version of Space Oddity!

Of course, when I stop to think about it, I strongly disapprove of space exploration, especially the money spent on it, and I think that we should keep our feet firmly on the ground and figure out how to live peaceably on this planet before we even think about going to another.  But – hey – a guitar in zero gravity!  The commander of the International Space Station singing “Major Tom to Ground Control”!  Video footage of the earth hurtling beneath him from day through night to day again!  I had to wipe away a little tear and agree with one of the YouTube comments – it makes you proud to be from Earth.

My head will bring my heart into line one of these days.  Perhaps.

  2. The 1st photo of Earth rising over the moon gave us all a wake up call. It put us in our place so to speak. I agree the cost of space exploration is hefty but there have been some awesome beneficial side effects.
