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.
