Chris Hadfield Says Goodbye to the ISS in a Really Cool Way.


How many ways can you say goodbye?  Just waving or saying goodbye is one of the first things we learn as we’re growing up.  There’s almost no wrong way to do it.  We’ve all done it.  However not many of us have said goodbye to the ISS and it’s crew.  International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield did a cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity before he left the ISS, and he posted it to Youtube; it’s one of those videos you just watch in awe the whole time.

Imagine being in orbit and seeing all the things Commander Hadfield has seen over his time on board, and then having to come back to Earth.  It would be sad and happy all at the same time; you’d be happy that you get to see your loved ones, and yet sad that you have to leave a place where the world just seems so much more beautiful.

Make sure you watch this inspiring video at least once.  You will be glad you did.
