With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.

Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.

Honestly, this is even better than you think it will be.

Politicalprof: If NASA marketed itself this way, we’d already have colonies on Mars…

All of our astronauts should be this self-aware.

Astronaut wardrobe malfunction. Perhaps I’m taking the “wear your clothes until they wear out” thing a little too far.

Today in astronauts having regular people problems.

Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.
