CHRIS HADFIELD - ISS (INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION)

Hello and welcome back....I found this interesting, I covered the ISS (International Space Station) in a previous post... SEE HERE
This is a song that one of the Astronauts on the space station has done, I have watched several videos by Canadian "Chris Hadfield" and he really shows a side to space that I don't think anyone else has.

SPACE ODDITY



As I am writing this, a capsule containing Chris and 2 others has just touched down back on earth after spending 6 months on the ISS.

WELCOME HOME CHRIS
