An Artsy Space Oddity


This was released on the internet yesterday.  Astronaut Chris Hadfield does really nice work with this David Bowie classic presented for the first time in its intended surroundings.  Pretty cool stuff.  For the record (so to speak), the first rock album played in space in its entirety was Delicate Sound of Thunder by my all-time favorite rock group, Pink Floyd.  That happened aboard a Soyuz spacecraft mission in late 1988.  On the back of the neck of a couple of Pink Floyd t-shirts I own there is an antennae symbol commemorating this historic first with the words: "Still First In Space."
