In May 2013, Astronaut Chris Hadfield from Canada recorded his version of the David Bowie song “Space Oddity” from the International Space Station, it was an instant it! In one year, the video racked up over 23 million views, and it inspired many people about what life is like in space. Sadly, the video had to be taken down because Chris only had a one year agreement with David Bowie for the video to be up on YouTube.
Now, Chris Hadfield is happy to announce that his version of “Space Oddity” is back up on YouTube with a two year agreement. On his blog, he said “for the countless others who have helped work to bring about a new era of exploration, the art of it sings to us all.” I could not say it any better, enjoy Space Oddity!
