Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is one of the most productive, informative and FUN crewmembers in a long time. His cover of 'Space Oddity', reportedly the first music video shot in space, has gone viral.

Yes, I noticed this on the news this morning - great stuff!

Apologies for being lazy, but did he record and produce the audio and video himself up there?
Pretty talented guy, if so.

He recorded several audio & video tracks of each segment, then they were edited & mixed on Earth. LA Times has an article on it here....

Quite a few, actually. The Canadian Space Agency is a full ISS partner and responsible for much of its robotics, which Canada is very good at. Hadfield has been ISS Commander for several months.

He's been a busy boy - 12+ hour days, social media, all kinds of stuff for space fans etc. A very popular crewmember.
