This is Commander Chris to Ground Control
May 12, 2013 3:18 PM   Subscribe

Today. the day after astronauts detected and repaired a "serious but not life-threatening" ammonia leak on the space station, Commander Chris Hadfield has passed over command of the space station. Planet earth is blue and there's nothing left to do ... except to release this video. Sorry, Tilda Swinton does not make an appearance. Video is suitable for all audiences. Hadfield previously on MeFi.

True fact: one of the astronauts who went on the spacewalk to fix the leak was named Tom. Yes, he made it back.

I would like to petition to have Don Petit, Hadfield and Coleman on station continuously, just doing the sort of stuff that they do. Their writing, music and general nerdery are the best advertisements for human space travel since Apollo.

I'm kind of surprised they managed to get an acoustic guitar up there... relatively light, for sure, but the volume tradeoff seems a bit extreme, no?

Anyway, this video was fantastic, and Cdr Hadfield will be missed; the photos he's posted to Twitter (especially with their newest internet speed upgrades in play) have been completely awe-inspiring. I wonder if you ever tire of the view... I can't imagine that'd be the case. It's essentially the amalgamation of all of the best views possible, in perpetuity.

Very, very cool video. I even don't hate that he's so heavily auto-tuned because it sort of works in this case. And I'll take it any day over the hot, cloying slice of awfulness he did with the Barenaked Ladies that the CBC plays incessantly.
The shot of his guitar hurtling through the cabin makes me scared for the inevitable crash into something, and a dented guitar.
Is it a space thing that he always sort of looks like the blood's rushing to his head? Like kind of puffy-eyed and vein-bulgey, sort of like if you take of picture of someone when they are upside down. I hadn't noticed it on anyone else. I don't know what he looks like on earth and I'm sort of stupid so I thought I'd ask.

I confess, chococat, that as much as I truly admire Hadfield, I, too, really hate that last song he released with Ed Whatsisface. The CBC has been using it as a blunt weapon on just about every show they broadcast.

But I think his cover of Space Oddity is very nice on its own, even if it is auto-tuned, and the video really sells it.

Yes, his face probably looks different in space than on earth because of the shift in blood volume and other bodily fluids in a zero gravity environment. From Mary Roach's Packing for Mars: "[Your organs] migrate up under your ribcage, reducing your waistline in a way no diet can. One NASA researcher called it the Space Beauty Treatment. Without gravity, your hair has more body. Your breasts don't sag. More of your body fluid migrates to your head and plumps your crow's feet. Because blood volume sensors are in the upper body only, your system thinks you are retaining too much fluid and dumps 10 to 15 percent of your water weight. Then again, I have also heard it called Puffy-Face Chicken-Leg Syndrome."

The "tin can" of the ISS fills me with awe, and I love that we live in an age where we are interacting with it in various ways which aren't strictly "scienceish".

How poetic for this to actually have been filmed in space. Could Bowie ever have imagined this when he wrote this song so many decades ago?

This has me tearing up for all kinds of reasons. But then, I'm still sort of recovering from this ISS moment from a U2 show a couple of years ago which combined with the overall flow of songs in that segment of the show rather moved me into an altered state of consciousness for a while.

I've been following Chris Hadfield's posts for months now. He is so kind and gentle, like a favourite teacher, like a character from a kids book, the one that teaches you to work hard and follow your dreams. It's kind of hard these days to believe anyone could be so genuine and sincere, but he is. And he is so so so achingly Canadian, the distillation of everything we all hope to be, humble and mild-mannered but still proud to be doing our part to make the world a better place. Wearing the maple leaf on his sleeve, the best kind of Canadian hero, one who achieves global recognition without having to claw or fight his way to the top or turn his back on his provincial roots, still charming and trusting, and even eager and proud to bring all of us along for the ride.

His return to earth is tomorrow, via the Soyuz capsule, in what is guaranteed to be a rough and unpleasant ride. I will be holding my breath all day. I want him to visit all the cities on Canada and be the guest of honour at parades where Canadian flags are flown from every window and red and white streamers are thrown from above. I want schools and parks named after him, the whole deal, I know he is almost too maple-syrupy-sweet and that we Canadians all fixate on our famous children a little too much like small-town aunts and uncles, but I don't really care. I'm happy he is real and I want him to make it back safely.

My brother wanted to be an astronaut, but his dreams were dashed by the Soyuz capsule. You have to be less than 6'3" to be an astronaut and apparently fitting in the Soyuz capsule is the constraint.
posted by hoyland at 4:58 PM on May 12, 2013 [4 favorites]


That rough and unpleasant ride link from PercussivePaul is a must-read. Note how the article ends:
Since these capsules come down on land rather than water, as the Apollo moon capsules did, a parachute landing is pretty hard. So just before touching down, when the capsule is only a metre above the ground, six engines (actually explosive devices) fire straight down to create a cushion of air that softens the landing. Shock absorbers built into the seats absorb the final thump onto planet Earth.

Astronauts have described a Soyuz landing as similar to surviving a train wreck. It's rough, but it is the most reliable system that has been working since the beginning of the space program.
The video ends with a shot that certainly looks like a Soyuz landing. Hadfield knows just what he's facing on Monday.

I cannot favorite just any one part of your comment, Paul, and I can't favorite the entirety enough. All good thoughts for Mr. Hadfield's safe return.

I really thought the video was going to be just a crude Bowie in 1972 /Ron Swanson mash. So much more.

Safe travels, Mr. Hadfield.

I'm really going to miss his photos, videos, and tweets from the ISS. I look forward to his inevitable talk show tour. He's really been the first astronaut that made me feel like I knew someone who was in space, like I had a friend who was sending me postcards.

I get email alerts when the ISS is passing overhead so for the past few months I've been looking for it and occasionally photographing it. I've done that before but lately when it passed over I'd wave and say "Hello, Chris." I kind of feel like he's ushered in a new era in space.

Safe travels, Commander.

For me, Hadfield has kind of been in the background. Growing up, I was a total space nerd. I knew astronaut names and knew which space shuttle orbiter was on each mission. Today, I guess I'm still a space nerd but the things I think about are more along the lines of space policy, the changes in the manned space program, and the rise of privatized space flight. Somewhere along the line I lost the interest in the individuals that make up the story.

For my wife it's a different story. She doesn't have the nerdy background that I have and never paid attention to the glory days of the shuttle program while growing up. But she follows Cmdr Hadfield on Twitter, retweets his pictures, and fills me in on what's going on with him every day. She woke up early yesterday to watch the repair spacewalk on the live feed. It's like living with a 12-year-old me. She, like PercussivePaul, regards him as a true Canadian hero.

And she's right. He's exactly the sort of human face that the space program needs, and his social media outreach combined with his obvious love of science and his job makes him an excellent role model. It's time for me to start paying attention to astronauts again.

I thought that was rather well done (and I am told I look exactly like the departed Steven Page) and it was rather neat to listen to my 10 year-old-son sing that song around the house.

The lyrical edits to the song, in addition ro making it factually accurate to the Commander's experience and situation (for example, "nothing left to do" instead of "nothing I can do") have the additional twin effects of making this cover of Space Oddity into simultaneously an answer song and an actual (one-way) dialog with Major Tom, the pop-culture lostronaut timelessly circling Earth.

Major Tom hears you, Commander. He loves you very much, you know.

Sure, but as long as you can also fit things inside the guitar for launch it looks rather more like a fragile storage box than wasted air.

The guitar went up on Shuttle, I believe, and that had a lot of cargo capacity. In fact, the first SpaceX Dragon to reach ISS was only something like 10% full, as they were rating the spacecraft and didn't want to/couldn't risk anything actually important -- and Dragon could actually fit an entire Soyuz descent module inside. The various cargo vehicles being prepped for ISS all have similarly massive capacity compared with a Soyuz/Progress vehicle.

Obviously you don't want to "waste" an ounce, but the space program sees value in giving the astronauts creative outlets and other things that keep them psychologically healthy.

Hadfield knows just what he's facing on Monday.

Indeed. Plenty of training. And indeed, maudlin, that article describes a problematic descent scenario very similar to the one that happened in 2008, when the capsule experienced a "ballistic re-entry" due to the failure of an explosive bolt.

Could Bowie ever have imagined this when he wrote this song so many decades ago?

I'm pretty confident that at the time he wrote it, the prevailing belief was that in 2013 we'd all be taking weekend jaunts to the moon.
