Social Media In Space
If you follow any of my feeds you know that I am fascinated by Col. Chris Hadfield's tweets from the International Space Station. Everyday you get to learn about the earth from the perspective of an astronaut by watching his @Cmdr_Hadfield twitter account. Of course I was very excited when he tweeted our pics of Kitchener-Waterloo and Southwestern Ontario. Another great moment was when he spoke to University Of Waterloo Students from space but my favorite moment was when he sang a duet with the Barenaked Ladies.
Watching this video always gives me chills!
Yesterday Commander Hadfield added to my enjoyment of this the I.S.S. watching with a rendition of ISS - Is Somebody Singing by participating in #MusicMonday. #MusicMonday is the first Monday in May and celebrates music in Canadian schools.
This year #MusicMonday was extra special with schools from coast to coast singing along with Col. Chris Hadfield through a livestream from the I.S.S

Now that is cool! If only they celebrated #MusicMonday when I went to school.
It looks like I would have participated! Here's the scene from the elementary school I went to A.R. Kaufman Public school with their school celebration.
