    Man this guy is such a badass.

    He's been to the bottom of the ocean, he's been in space.

       And now he's in my heart.

    Chris Hadfield's videos are exactly the kind of thing that's needed if we want to build public support for campaigns like Penny4NASA

    Man, you beat me to posting this.

    Going to miss all the videos and pictures - I've no doubt that it encourages people to learn about the space station, which I guess leads in a roundabout way to that public support thing.

    It's pretty obvious he's sad about leaving the station, which makes it even worse - given the probable discontinuation of awesome space videos.

    I did wonder for a few minutes how they might've gotten a piano aboard the ISS.

    Dude's taught people so much about space just from simple explanations, it's a shame there's a new commander.


    I've always wondered though, and this has been puzzling me for a while, how guitar sustain is affected by Zero Gs...will it ring out indefinitely?

    Don't think so, as the cords will still be pulled taunt. Also, on the same topic(ish):

    Came across this picture while the video was playing in the background.



    Why does it fit so well? I can't stop watching it while the music's playing.

    Hadfield's a great guy, hope we'll get someone like him on the ISS again in the future.
    Also, Dara O'Briain posted this as tribute to Hadfield:

    Bearing in mind the only difference really is the lack of gravity (well, gravitational forces), which - while it does affect stuff like the density of air, and therefore the speed of sound, by small amounts - produces no noticable affect on soundwaves, as far as I know.

    Wouldn't there be no gravity to pull the hammers back down?

    My thoughts exactly.

    The piano was either recorded here on earth, or is a digital instrument. (Or both)

    He's on your new $5 bill:

    He's the first Canadian to do an EVA, so I'm guessing that's him.

    I believe he cooperated with an actual live member of Bowie's band to get the rest of the instruments coordinated.

    I hesitate to believe they would send up a full piano, even if it functioned in space

    Very nice song.

    The original is quite sad though..
    Basically, the astronaut dies in this at least it seems to say that.
