Guitar In Space

Larrivée guitar features in International Space Station Space Oddity video      13/05/13

Back in 2001 a Larrivée parlour acoustic guitar was delivered to the International Space Station on NASA's space shuttle Discovery mission STS-105.  Since then it has orbitted the earth tens of thousands of times, making it almost certainly the world's most travelled instrument.

Consequently, the guitar has been featured in a Youtube video for Commander Hadfield's cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity from the International Space Station.

Today, as he prepares to return to Earth, the video has been featured extensively across the UK's mainstream media, including coverage on BBC Breakfast, Sky News, The Guardian, Independent, Telegraph and many more.  This story is currently trending on Twitter.

The small parlour guitar guitar was originally delivered to the Space Station over a decade ago but  Larrivée tells us that the the nearest equivalent today is a P-03 model.
