Space Oddity: Astronaut Ends Mission With Music Video

discoverynews:

Wonderful tribute to a Bowie classic. Have a safe trip home, Hadfield, Marshburn and Romanenko!

At first, I wasn’t sure what to think of astronaut Mark Hadfield singing “Major Tom.” Hadfield’s voice is certainly no Bowie’s and I was a little embarrassed. I kept watching, though, and realized I was being churlish and silly. Hadfield can actually carry the tune and he’s the real thing. Astronaut, that is. I’ll bet Bowie would give his left nut to be up there on the ISS. I would. Bravo!

(Spoiler alert: there’s a happy ending in the video, unlike “Space Oddity”).
