Down-to-earth Astronaut croons in orbit – Amazing Video

ASTRONAUT Chris Hadfield has opened up about his views on space, faith and our place in the universe.

When asked if being in space has changed his perspective on spirituality, Hadfield, who has spent a total of six months in space and has orbited Earth thousands of times, said that his faith has “absolutely” been reinforced by his time in the cosmos.

“The world, when you look at it, it just can’t be random,” he said. “I mean, it’s so different than the vast emptiness that is everything else and even all the other planets we’ve seen, at least in our solar system, none of them even remotely resemble the precious life-giving nature of our own planet.”

Ultimately, Hadfield says, being in space and staring down at the twinkling “jewel” that is the Earth, one quickly comes to realize how complex and compassionate our planet really is:

“I think what everyone would find if they could be [up in space] — if they could see the whole world every 90 minutes and look down on the places where we do things right, and look down where we’re doing stupid, brutal things to each other and the inevitable patience of the world that houses us — I think everybody would be reinforced in their faith, and maybe readdress the real true tenets of what’s good and what gives them strength.”

Here in this amazing video he sings Space Oddity,,,in space. He recorded this vid while floating on the International Space Station.

  1. Dear God Of The Gaps….(““The world, when you look at it, it just can’t be random,” he said. “I mean, it’s so different than the vast emptiness that is everything else and even all the other planets we’ve seen, )

    ….please protect us from infection of the ‘Brainlessness’ bug that makes this kind of comment:- …. (“other planets we’ve seen,…, none of them even remotely resemble the precious life-giving nature of our own planet.”)

    Please do inform them that the Martians You, in Your Eternal Wisdom, created as subterranean cave-dwellers probably say the same thing every time they’re exposed to views of that ghastly, cold and polluted Blue Thing hanging in their otherwise perfectly black Heavenly Vault.

    …..and let them not forget that astronauts count among their numbers Germs, Rats, Cockroaches, Chimpanzees and Dogs ~ most of whom were too intelligent to want to go.

  2. ps. ,,,,,and would somebody PUH-LEESE demand that the ‘Relevant Authority’ allow public comments ONLY from astronauts with a standard of literacy/grammar somewhat higher than that of a kid in Grade Three?

  3. so we can tell our world can’t be random because it is so different to anything else.

    That doesnt make sense. That doesn’t make sense wouldn’t you expect diference if things were random ??
