Chris Hadfield—astronaut, and commander of Expedition 35 on the International Space Station—is full of surprises. He's been tweeting amazing pictures from space for months, and has even sung a duet with a musician on the ground.
Still, this I did not expect: a full-blown music video of him singing and playing guitar to David Bowie's "Space Oddity." This is, quite simply, amazing.
Commander Hadfield comes back to Earth tomorrow, riding the fiery chariot of a Soyuz capsule. One of his crewmates coming home with him is ... Tom Marshburn.
