Colonel Chris Hadfield Sings “Space Oddity” On BBC News

Since blasting off from Kazakhstan in December 2012, Colonel Chris Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation, harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and infusing a sense of wonder into the collective consciousness not felt since man first walked on the moon. Currently in the United Kingdom in support of his new book, An Astronaut’s Guide To Life On Earth, Colonel Hadfield treated the BBC to his cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity, first made famous when he performed the song in orbit, while commanding the International Space Station.
