And now, Apollo 17 astronauts singing. On the Moon.

Let's say you're an astronaut. You're on the Moon. You're hundreds of thousands of miles away from home, and the only thing between you and near-vacuum conditions is a cumbersome space-suit that affords about as much maneuverability as a body cast. What do you do?


Well, if you're Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, you skip around and sing a song. "The Fountain in the Park," to be precise.

This is some of the best Moon-walking tomfoolery we've seen since that video of astronauts falling over. Protip: you can see Schmitt eat it starting at 00:41.


Dadoop dadoop dadoop.

I'd have had another first choice of song, though....
