Re: The Real Space Oddity
Saw this the other day - gorgeous. That song gave me the tingles as a teen and it still does. It's testimony to David Bowie's imagination and sensibility that Chris found so many of the lyrics applicable today.
It's been a good year for inspiring footage from space - this video, Felix Baumgartner's 39 kilometre (24 mile) space jump and the amazing video and photos from the Martian surface by the space rovers (notwithstanding the hundreds of silly videos claiming to have seen evidence of life in the Martian surface shots). The only bummer is that the rovers' sound gear broke and we still can't hear the sounds of the Martian surface.
