Wow! What a video! Kudos to everyone who helped create this fantastic music video that was just uploaded to YouTube. (And kudos to David Bowie, for allowing this majestic performance of his classic song from, um, 1969.) Until now, David’s performance was definitive. I think that this performance trumps David’s. What do you think?

Emm Gryner tells the story behind this performance.
This is Canadian Commander Hadfield’s last day aboard ISS after nearly five months in space. He arrived December 21 and took command of the space station on March 13. He’s been an active contributor to social networks while aboard ISS. Tomorrow, he will return to Earth aboard a Russian Soyez TMA-07M. God speed, Chris Hadfield!

Let’s boldly go. How will we move data across vast distances as we explore space? I briefly essayed this in Extending the Internet off-Earth. I’ve since learned that Internet pioneer Vint Cerf, ever the adventurer, has been collaborating with others on the Interplanetary Internet, which will probably replace IP (Internet Protocol) with Bundle Protocol (BP). It’s a tall order: in space, propagation delay, multipath, and dropout problems will dwarf those found on Earth or near Earth orbit.
