Canadian astronaut covers Bowie's 'Space Oddity' IN SPACE

No one could accuse Chris Hadfield of taking the intuitive path to a music career. First, he became an astronaut, and then Commander of the International Space Station. Along the way, he learned to play the guitar and waited for his big moment. That moment came yesterday, when he recorded himself, in orbit, playing the only song you could ever really play in this situation: David Bowie's "Space Oddity," resulting in the first music video shot in outer space. And, sure, he plays with the lyrics and blah blah blah, but guess what! HE'S IN SPACE! SINGING DAVID BOWIE! IT'S FANTASTIC!
Just admit that if you were an astronaut, you'd have done the same thing.
Hadfield is scheduled to return to Earth to-DAY-hay-ay. Bon voyage.
