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.
