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?

Much like Captain Kirk, who was on a mission “to explore strange new worlds” and, “to seek out new life and new civilizations,” William Shatner recently wandered into one of the more—ahem, shall we say, “stubborn”—sites on the Internet, and was not pleased with what he found. Luckily, he was willing to break the prime directive and address this problem directly. Even better, he found people willing to hear him out. Go team Internet!
