In a scene reminiscent of that at the end of \'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan\', the sound of \'Amazing Grace\' being played on the bagpipes drifted through the International Space Station this week in tribute to research scientist and instructor Victor Hurst who passed away last month.

In space, no one can hear you play bagpipes.

Fortunately.

That took guts to play them a spacecraft. Bagpipes are very difficult to master. I guess he did well enough they didn't throw him out the airlock.

I heard it the first time, Waspie I am not much for pipes, even though I like Celtic music. Like I said, he did well enough not to be thrown out the airlock.

Astra.

It takes quite a bit of diligence and patience to master the bagpipes - he did a great job.

Being able to play music while up in space is known to help astronauts combat feelings of isolation.

I remember a revised version of David Bowie's Space Oddity - recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station. He loved his guitar.

I might be persuaded to go up there, with a pole dancer, to study the effects of pole dancing in weightlessness. :innocent:

If bagpipes would be played during an EVA, the bagpipe would work as a cold gas thruster device. So alienz

may think we use cold gas thruster devices to make music, if not in regular use.
