SOMETHING MORE ABOUT SPACE...

On January 10th, 2016 David Bowie passed away, but he left an interesting legacy of songs, videos, art, tolerance and a new way to see life. 


One of his best song ever was  "Space Oddity" released in 1969 during a period of great interest in space flight. The United States' Apollo 11 mission would launch five days later and would become the first manned moon landing another five days after that.


In 2013, the song was covered by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who performed the song while aboard the and therefore became the first music video shot in space. 
It has reached popularity in 2016 because it was used by Lady Heroine for the game "Call of Duty Infinity warfare"

Chris Hadfield ( 1959) was the first Canadian to walk in space, he flew two space shuttle missions and served as commander of the International Space Station. 
He was responsible for a crew of five astronauts and helped to run dozens of scientific experiments dealing with the impact of low gravity on human biology. 
During the mission he also gained popularity by chronicling life aboard the space station and taking pictures of the earth and posting them through social networks and by singing and playing the guitar in space for the first time. 

Before listening and watching the video I'd like you to try to define or give a synonym for the following words that you'll see in the video. 

DETACH       HATCH       GROUND CONTROL      MAKE THE GRADE   
  COUNTDOWN         CAPSULE
