Okay, so I know you’ve already seen this. It’s gone viral, and it’s been in the news. But how could I not add it to my Inspire Kids series? Chris Hadfield has been a wonderful role model for children by creating all sorts of YouTube videos during his five months as commander of Expedition 35 at the International Space Station. I posted one in my Inspire Kids already that I especially like, and you can find more on YouTube. Both of my sons loved watching this as I’m sure everyone has.
The vocals were really recorded in space! This is his version of David Bowie’s 1969 “Space Oddity.”
He just returned to Earth last week. Thanks for all your hard work, Commander Hadfield.
