A music video shot on board the International Space Station became a web sensation on Monday, transforming a space traveler into an overnight music sensation with his zero-gravity rendition of David Bowie’s hit “Space Oddity.”
As the main Canadian to order the space station, a $100 million venture of 15 countries, Chris Hadfield had effectively earned himself a place in the history books.
In any case, as he arranged to profit home for Monday after over five months in circle, Hadfield discharged a strong “the internet” interpretation of Bowie’s tune, which was initially discharged in 1969 only in front of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
The video, with its well known hold back “Ground Control to Major Tom,” had more than 1.5 million hits on YouTube early Monday evening and was being touted as the principal music video ever taped in space.
Finish with re-worked verses and amazing film that Hadfield and his group mates shot on board the orbital station, the video demonstrates the space traveler singing about the approaching end of his space mission while drifting in mid-air over the blue Earth.
“In spite of the fact that I’ve flown 100,000 miles, I’m feeling still and before too long I know it’s a great opportunity to go,” the space explorer murmurs.
Hadfield, NASA space explorer Tom Marshburn and Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko, really have piled on a huge number of miles (kilometers) as they hovered around 250 miles over the planet in the course of the last 5-1/2 months.
Hadfield’s singing and acoustic guitar playing is joined by shocking video of the space station flying around the planet, a guitar free-gliding and a ghostly shot of a spacesuit during the evening.
