News of the Nifty: Song from space.
NASA has had a long tradition of sending music into space to wake up the astronauts on the space station or in orbiting issions, and usually they hold a contest to select what they transmit.

Well, the new Space Station commander, Chris Hadfield (he's Canadian *grin*) managed to wangle permission to take his guitar to the space station, and has written and performed and recorded an original (Christmassy) song aboard the space station.

It might be the first song recorded on the space station, or even the first song recorded in space, so yeah. And it's not bad, considering he's just an astronaut, not a professional musician. ;-D

Adding a Soundcloud widget (which I hope works) as the YouTube post is a bit slow to respond, I suspect due to traffic.

He tweets too, @Cmdr_Hadfield, for those who do the Twitter thing.
