Video Of The Day: One Last Song Before Planetfall

For his last downlink before returning to Earth, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing) with hundreds of students at the Ontario Science Centre and nearly a million people, mostly students from coast-to-coast Canada and around the world, performing the song in unison from their location. CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen was present at the history-making Music Monday event at the Science Centre and moderated a Q&A with students and Commander Hadfield.

We had to post this – we sang along, and not without  tears in our eyes.

Enjoy.  And, safe journey home, Commander Hadfield.
