Astronaut Chris Hadfield has become the first person ever to record a music video in outer space, with his cover of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity'.
The video which was mixed and edited by Joe Corcoran, sees outgoing international space station commander Hadfield floating weightlessly while strumming an acoustic guitar, singing Bowie's 1969 classic.
Hadfield, who has become something of an online sensation during his five-month mission to outer space, tweeted the video last night as a farewell to his Twitter fanbase as his time in the international space station comes to a close.
He tweeted saying: "With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here's Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World."
