Viral Everyone's Sharing an Astronaut's Rendition of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity'
Following the somber news of David Bowie's death, hundreds of thousands of people are revisiting a music video for Bowie's 1969 single "Space Oddity" that was filmed in outer space.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield performed the stirring rendition of the song aboard the International Space Station.
The video has been watched a staggering 28 million times and was produced with help from a member of Bowie's band.
Bowie himself admired the video greatly, with his Facebook page calling it "possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created."
Hadfield paid his respects to Bowie on Twitter yesterday.
Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust. Your brilliance inspired us all. Goodbye Starman. pic.twitter.com/FbcxlAzces
