Is Somebody Listening?

9 Feb

Chris Hadfield and BNL's Ed Robertson Singing I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing?)Finally, NASA is learning how to sing for its dinner (via Boing Boing).

The song, which was written by Hadfield and Robertson in partnership with Music Monday, CBC Music and the Canadian Space Agency, explores what it’s like to look down on the Earth from outer space. It will also be the official song for the 2013 edition of Music Monday, which takes place on May 6.

David Bowie may have paid tribute to the great unknown with songs like “Starman” and “Space Oddity,” and Rush, a favourite of Hadfield’s, penned an entire space-rock opera, 2112, but how will they compare to a song written in space, by an actual astronaut?

I’m sure the technical details, how Ed and Chris could sing and strum in unison are even more impressive than the song itself.
