Commander Chris Hadfield has had an exciting 6 months. The Canadian astronaut on the International Space Station has been the toast of Twitter with his gorgeous images of Earth as seen from orbit.
To commemorate his final hours aboard ISS, he recorded a modified version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” He tweeted about the video yesterday.
The video instantly went viral, garnering over a million views in just 24 hours. It even got David Bowie’s attention.
Hadfield returns to Earth today via Russian Soyuz capsule landing in Kazakstan.
