Chris Hadfield wins space race for Canadians with Bowie cover song

The Canadians won the space race the moment they sent commander Chris Hadfield into orbit. In his time aboard the International Space Station he's taken gorgeous photos of New Zealand, answered numerous questions on Reddit and still found time to undertake the sciency things the Canadians sent him into space to do in the first place.

Hadfield is set to return to Earth tomorrow and as his final (we hope not) farewell to space, he sings this masterful cover of David Bowie's 1969 classic, Space Oddity.
