David Bowie, Chris Hadfield and Space Oddity

This is just about the most awesome David Bowie cover ever:

Chris Hadfield, a Canadian Astronaut, has spent five months as the commander of the International Space Station and has delighted the world of the internet with funny and educating videos showing how simple things like washing your hands or making a sandwich work differently in space.

On Sunday he handed over the command of ISS to Commander Pavel Vinogradov, the leader of Expedition 36.

This final act of goodbye and humorous genius is, frankly, unsurpassable.
