I Always Knew Astronauts Were Cool...

...but this just took it one step further.  

From a Galaxy not so far away, I give you Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield, who has just handed over control of the International Space Station and will soon be headed home.  And yes, HE is singing and playing the guitar.  Standing ovation Sir!

And tell me you won't be dreaming about a floating guitar tonight too, Map.  :)

ND Mitchell: yep, it's stuck in my head too and I like it much better than Bowie's version. :)

Ponita: your country should be proud! What a cool first astronaut for y'all.

Map: me too. And I can STILL see that guitar.
