Astronaut Finishes Space Station Expedition With ‘Space Oddity’ Cover

Chris Hadfield

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been delighting the internet with his videos from space since he took over command of the International Space Station last December. Now, his time has come to an end and he is handing over control to Expedition 36, but not before recording and uploading one last video: a rather well-done cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”

Watch as Hadfield sings lines like “high above the world” while literally being high above the world, with Earth in the background. I hope Hadfield sticks around in the public eye, because having a social media-friendly astronaut who wants to show everyone how cool being in space can be is the best argument for continuing and expanding our space programs.
