INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (CNN/WLFI) — Purdue graduate and NASA astronaut Drew Feustel has had a lot on his plate recently. Feustel stint on the International Space Station wraps up Wednesday, and he will bring with him a song and music video recorded from space.
He has been on the ISS since March, but he’s also been busy recording a song and music video, CNN reports. Both were released on Sunday.
Feustel recorded “All Around the World” while he was literally orbiting the planet. The song was written by Feustel's friend, Gord Sinclair of the Canadian rock band "The Tragically Hip." You can watch it below:
Sinclair said the song reflects Feustel's experience on the ISS, emphasizing themes of international cooperation and brotherhood.
Feustel earned a bachelor's degree in solid earth sciences from Purdue in 1989. He earned his master's in geophysics in 1991. As we reported in May, Feustel was awarded a special honorary degree at Purdue's May 11 commencement while he was in space.
