If I had to nominate a YouTube video of the year, this would be it: Commander Chris Hadfield singing Space Oddity by David Bowie onboard the International Space Station. His YouTube channel is full of cool videos filmed way up there beyond the pale blue yonder, and some very funny ones here on solid ground, but this one is the most moving. Hadfield didn’t just capture the melancholy of Bowie’s lyrics but lived it right before our very eyes. I’m amazed that it’s taken me this long to see it and I’m so glad that I did. Hat tip goes to my My Life at Speed colleague Dave Philip for the share.
