Your Only Chance to Hear a "Space Oddity" Cover Recorded in Space

ISS Commander and mustachioed Canadian Chris Hadfield has given us no end of joys during his current five-month stint floating above our blue orb. But perhaps none of them is as touching—and just downright incredible—as his sendoff cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity."


Here Hadfield, who's coming back to Earth tomorrow, takes on David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and it's just the best. We get to see ISS in flight, watch Hadfield's guitar float through gravity, and listen to his surprisingly good astro-voice. If you can think of a better way to spend your last day in space, I'd love to hear it.

And here's Hadfield saying goodbye to all of us. Best astronaut anyone who isn't an old fart remembers as being an astronaut.
