Chris Hadfield Sings ‘Space Oddity’ in Space (VIDEO)
Commander Chris Hadfield has been orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station for the past five months. During that time, he’s provided us Earth-dwellers tons of cool tweets, videos and photos showing just what life is like in space. He taught us that without gravity, wringing out a wet washcloth is an impossible task – but that sleeping in space is actually way easier than you’d think.
Almost time to leave Station. Hard to express all of my emotions, but mostly gratitude. I came here on behalf of so many people – thank you.

Tonight, Commander Hadfield is returning to Earth – but not before he gives us one final performance. And it’s a great one!
In this video, Commander Hadfield performs a slightly altered version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” complete with space guitar and some amazing views of our planet. Check it out!
