While sitting in a tin can …

… astronaut Chris Hadfield has created a video cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” made on location in the International Space Station:

and a damned good job he made of it too.

Update 7th Aug 2014: The original video went private, now updated with a new link

I can’t stop watching this. Seriously.. everything is surreal in this video. No special effects or CGI gimmicks. The earth in the background is really us.. our home. This is just a fine example of humanity at it’s best. A reminder of the things we can achieve and experience when we work together for a better life instead of killing/taking advantage of one another.

And more details about how the piece was put together:
