Space Oddity: Chris Hadfield Safely Lands To Millions Of YouTube Views
May 14, 2013 14:10

In the span of his own career, Space Oddity has remained David Bowie's most commercially successful hit. Almost prophetically written a few months before Apollo II mission, a story of an unfortunate spaceman Major Tom told the earthlings that "planet Earth is blue", which was then confirmed by the Apollo photographs. Many years later, a Canadian Commander Chris Hadfield used his final day at the International Space Station to record his own cover of Bowie's song. This double tribute - both to the song and to David Bowie, whose exhibition at the V&A run till August - has amassed millions of views on YouTube. 
For Chris Hadfield this was his third voyage into space. The Soyuz mission has started in December 2012 and lasted for 146 days. It was 117th flight for Soyuz spaceship that was first sent into space in 1967.
