Astronaut Performs David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” While Floating in Space

Before he returns to Earth after five months aboard the International Space Station, Commander Chris Hadfield recorded this amazing cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”

This isn’t Hadfield’s first foray into the world of YouTube. During his time in space he picked up quite the following here on Earth with his videos explaining what it’s like living for an extended period in space.

Ed note: We think this video should play on a loop in the National Air and Space Museum. What do you think of Hadfield’s cover?

Chris Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut aboard the International Space Station, appears to show an unidentified flying object approaching the the ISS on Monday, April 1.  In response, Hadfield’s colleagues pushed him out a station airlock, responding to his entreaties to open the doors with “I’m sorry, Chris.  I can’t do that.”  (Photo via The Wall Street Journal)

BUBBLE, BOY!  Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield, Expedition 34 flight engineer, watches a water bubble float freely between him and the camera on the International Space Station. Hadfield took the helm of the ISS yesterday, only the second time in the outpost’s 12-year history that command has been turned over to someone who is not American or Russian.  (Photo: NASA via Reuters / The Telegraph)
