The Kid Should See This

Wringing out Water on the ISS and ‘Space Oddity’

To celebrate Commander Chris Hadfield‘s return to earth today, Monday, May 13, Scientific American has collected the Top 10 Commander Hadfield Videos from the International Space Station. Excellent watching all around.

Above: the most popular video on their list, Wringing out Water on the ISS – For Science. And a just-released bonus vid below, the Commander’s version of David Bowie’s 1969 Space Oddity:

It’s the first music video made in space.

For more from Hadfield, we highly recommend: The Darkest Dark, a picture book for kids. Plus: You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes: Photographs from the Internationand Space Station and An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything.
