This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating 
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do 

Space travel is a lot different now than when David Bowie released Space Oddity. It was 1969 and the man had just landed on the moon and here on earth people didn't know much about the Hows and Whys but it was all very marvellous. 

Now we have developed technology and the internet at a point that everything in this world is at a close reach to us and even out of space.

Canadian Space Agency have their super charismatic astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield at the International Space Station (ISS) and had this brilliant idea of recording youtube videos of their day-to-day lives and how they manage to do ordinary things with NO gravity.

Its super interesting to learn how exactly it is to be an astronaut in space and really share the experience with them, Chris Hadfield speaks from space to a conference at the Canadian Space Agency and answers questions from the select audience. Other than that he records the hows to things like sleeping in space, shaving, excersizing, wringing out water from a clothes and even crying! It is a great ideas to make people get curious about science.

Here are some videos that definitely need to be shared!
