Canadian AstronautOn Sunday, David Bowie's 1969 classic song Space Oddity was covered by a Canadian astronaut.

230 miles above the Earth, Commander Chris Hadfield recorded his version of the intergalactic hit to mark the end of his time on the International Space Station, posting his music video online ahead of his scheduled return to Earth the following day.

In the clip, Hadfield sings Bowie's track while strumming an acoustic guitar, floating effortlessly around the craft and gazing out of a window into space.

In a post on his Twitter page, Hadfield writes, "With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here's Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World."

Bowie replied by tweeting, "Hallo spaceboy."

Hadfield has spent the last five months aboard the ISS, and has become an Internet sensation by tweeting regular updates about his experiences in zero gravity.
