This is the full-length version of the history-making Music Monday event.

For his last downlink before returning to Earth, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing) with hundreds of students at the Ontario Science Centre and nearly a million people, mostly students from coast-to-coast Canada and around the world, performing the song in unison from their location.

CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen was present at the Ontario Science Centre and moderated a Q&A with students and Commander Hadfield.

I.S.S. is a song co-written by Hadfield and the Barenaked Ladies’ front man Ed Robertson. It was co-commissioned by CBC Music and the Coalition for Music Education.
