space oddity

A music video shot inside  the International Space Station spread on Monday, making  an astronaut into an overnight music success, inspired  with his zero-gravity version of David Bowie’s hit "Space Oddity."

Chris Hadfield was the first Canadian to command the space station, a $100-million project of 15 nations,  had already made himself history.

While he is setting  to go back home  on Monday after his five months in orbit, Hadfield released a poignant "cyberspace" version  of Bowie’s song, which was initially  released in 1969 just ahead of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Meanwhile, this music video is not Hadfield’s first  performance in public. He is actually the lead vocalist and played  the bass guitar in the Houston-based all-astronaut rock band, Max Q.
