Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have created a one-of-a-kind video of them singing along to Travis Tritt’s hit song, “It’s A Great Day to Be Alive.” Starring commander, Chris Cassidy, and the ISS crew, the video features clips of them living their daily lives in space while lip-syncing to the famous Travis Tritt tune!
Cassidy and the crew are part of Expedition 63, a long-duration mission to the International Space Station. The team is helping to conduct research and participate in several spacewalks outside of the station. The mission began on April 17, 2020, and will continue through October 2020.
"From 250 miles above the Earth, Expedition 63 is very much aware of the hard times which exist in the neighborhoods of the world rotating below. Even amid the uncertainty and difficulties of battling through these challenging times, we encourage everyone to be the best “crewmates” & take care of each other. Cherish the people you love."
-Commander Chris Cassidy
Travis Tritt commented about the video, saying, “This is the closest I will ever get to actually being in space. I’m very honored to have my music being played on the International Space Station!”
