Last week I had the pleasure of watching “The First Man” on iTunes and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed, what a time of bravery, skill and development of technology. After watching, it got me thinking. Have we really progressed far in exploration of space since 1969? At the time I felt – not really.
But then I remember seeing this video of Chris Hadfield singing “Space Oddity” in space on youtube. What really got to me was that in this video -there is no special effects, no computer graphics, nothing visually added just Chris is singing in space (watch for the scene when he plays in front of the window – that is actually Earth) on the International Space Station.
I have read his book and loved the way he described life on the space station, I recommend it.
So I guess we have come a long way….
