‘Jewel in the night’ je prva pjesma snimljena u svemiru

Chris Hadfield

Rijetko tko si može priuštiti bestežinski Božić, a upravo u spomenutom uživa posada svemirske stanice ISS (International Space Station).

Na žalost, posada je daleko od obitelji i ne preostaje im ništa drugo nego zabaviti se u ograničenim uvjetima, a što ih nije spriječilo da snime ‘svemirsku’ božićnu pjesmu. Na ovaj potez odlučio se trenutni zapovjednik ISS-a Chris Hadfield.

Pogledajte i poslušajte, a pod videom imate i potpuni tekst pjesme ‘Jewel in the night’, čisto ako poželite zapjevati.

So bright, Jewel in the night.
There in my window below.
So bright, dark as the night.
With all of our cities aglow.

It’s long been our way
To honor this day
And offer good will to man.

And know, where eever we go,
It’s come round to Christmas again.

So far, shines every star.
They’re without limit to see.
So grand, far away land
Beckoning, calling to thee

And let it be shown
Where ever we go
In all of the wonders above,

With all that we bring
There’s no finer thing
Than this message, this province of love.

A love for the families
That gather below.
Love for the stranger
That you’ll never know.

For those who aren’t with you
Who wander above.

So bright, jewel in the night.
There lies the cradle we knew.
Home of all that we love
And all of our memories, too.

It shall be our way
To wander away
And take with us all that we know.
And never cease this message of peace
From Bethlehem so long ago.

It shall be our way, to wander away,
And take with us all that we know.
And never cease, this message of peace,
From Bethlehem so long ago.

Kako se ispostavlja Jewel in the night prva je pjesma snimljena u svemiru.
