Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield became a social media superstar during his time aboard the International Space Station, regularly sending Tweets and videos from the space station to Earth after arriving on the ISS in December 2012
One of his most popular videos was a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity." The video racked up millions of views before the song's licensing agreement expired, and it was pulled from YouTube in May 2014.
Now, six months later, "Space Oddity" (live from space!) is back. In an announcement posted to his blog, Hadfield wrote that "we are so happy to be able to announce that my on-orbit cover of Space Oddity is back up on YouTube."
"This time we have a new 2-year agreement, and it is there, for free, for everyone. We’re proud to have helped bring Bowie’s genius from 1969 into space itself in 2013, and now ever-forward. Special thanks to Onward Music Ltd, to the Canadian Space Agency and NASA, to musicians Emm Gryner and Joe Corcoran, to videographer Andrew Tidby, to my son Evan, and mostly to Mr. David Bowie himself. For the countless others who have helped work to bring about a new era of exploration, the art of it sings to us all."
Hadfield frequently shared snippets of daily life in space, from how astronauts sleep to how to cook a space burrito.
