Three-and-a-half minutes of Deborah delivering the news … and an awesome two-and-a-half minutes of Chris Hadfield’s now-classic rendition of Bowie’s Space Oddity, delivered from ISS. RIP, David Bowie.
This week … see video of SpaceX’s sea-going and land-based attempts to land a rocket upright, a belch from a supermassive black hole, and get an update on the magnificent planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft.
Special thanks to Slooh.com for producing this video.

Deborah Byrd created the EarthSky radio series in 1991 and EarthSky.org in 1994. Today, she serves as Editor-in-Chief of this website. She has won a galaxy of awards from the broadcasting and science communities, including having an asteroid named 3505 Byrd in her honor. A science communicator and educator since 1976, Byrd believes in science as a force for good in the world and a vital tool for the 21st century. "Being an EarthSky editor is like hosting a big global party for cool nature-lovers," she says.
