This video (and this song) are out of this world!

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is scheduled to make his return trip to Earth late Monday after five months aboard the International Space Station, and he decided to commemorate his final hours in space with a spectacular music video.

Hadfield covers David Bowie's classic (and incredibly appropriate) song "Space Oddity." In the video, he sings a "revised version" of the song and plays the guitar solo while floating through the hulls of the ship. Not only is Hadfield brilliant and fearless, he's also a great singer.

During his time at the space station, Hadfield has won plenty of fans by tweeting and posting videos about what it's like to live for so long in space. He also recently hosted a singalong from space with thousands of Canadian schoolchildren. We can't wait to see what he does when he gets back on firm footing here on Earth.
