Just because it’s Monday and I think this is kinda cool… here’s a music video by Commander Chris Hadfield of him singing David Bowie’s timeless class Space Oddity in a way that really makes it spectacular, cool and awesome

A revised version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station. Hadfield has created several other interesting videos of unusual things to do in space. Check them out here


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
