why isn't there footage of him on the piano in space??
[QUOTE=Water-Marine;40624865]Dude's taught people so much about space just from simple explanations, it's a shame there's a new commander. I've always wondered though, and this has been puzzling me for a while, how guitar sustain is affected by Zero Gs...will it ring out indefinitely?[/QUOTE] Bearing in mind the only difference really is the lack of gravity (well, gravitational forces), which - while it does affect stuff like the density of air, and therefore the speed of sound, by small amounts - produces no noticable affect on soundwaves, as far as I know.

[QUOTE=Ott;40645548]Wouldn't there be no gravity to pull the hammers back down?[/QUOTE] My thoughts exactly. The piano was either recorded here on earth, or is a digital instrument. (Or both)
[QUOTE=One Forty Three;40633301]Makes me proud to be Canadian. This was absolutely wonderful and made my day.[/QUOTE] He's on your new $5 bill: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr0g_xD20mA[/media] [img]http://i.imgur.com/XlJAsJ2.jpg[/img] He's the first Canadian to do an EVA, so I'm guessing that's him.

[QUOTE=Ott;40645548]Wouldn't there be no gravity to pull the hammers back down?[/QUOTE] I hesitate to believe they would send up a full piano, even if it functioned in space
He has the Howard Moon shrimp eyes
Very nice song. The original is quite sad though.. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhSYbRiYwTY[/media] Basically, the astronaut dies in this at least it seems to say that.
