VIDEO: Astronaut Chris Hadfield sings David Bowie's 'Space Oddity', creates first space music video

International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield has spent the last several months living in space.

As he was preparing to end his stint at the station, he recorded the first music video from space, a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity".

In the video, the Canadian astronaut floats around the ship strumming a guitar and singing the space-themed song.

Mobile users watch the video here:

David Bowie gave a nod to the cover with this tweet, 'CHRIS HADFIELD SINGS SPACE ODDITY IN SPACE! "Hallo Spaceboy..."'

Hadfield tweeted on Sunday, "Almost time to leave Station. Hard to express all of my emotions, but mostly gratitude. I came here on behalf of so many people - thank you." He returns to earth Monday.
