Astronaut, rocker perform 1st original duet from space and Earth

An astronaut and a rock singer recorded an original song together and released it on Friday (Feb. 8) as the first duet of new music performed simultaneously in space and on the ground.

A rocket launch and the beauty of the planet Earth are the subjects of the song, which was performed in space by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, while accompanied by Canadian singer Ed Robertson, the frontman of the band Barenaked Ladies, and others on Earth.

The song, called "I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)," focuses on the experience of a person in space missing his loved ones on the Earth below. The lyrics include, "If you could see our nation from the International Space Station, you'd know why I want to get back soon."

I would love to see a joint appearance by BL and Max Q. This song should be nominated for a Grammy. I file it in the same special catagory as the Apollo 7 TV broadcast that won an Emmy.
