Chris Hadfield, the first Canadian to walk in space, is one of the most social media savvy astronauts to leave Earth.  Hadfield has over 828,000 Twitter followers on the @Cmdr_Hadfield account.  Today, he is going to return back to Earth later today after being aboard the International Space Station after five months.  Hadfield concluded his trip with this awesome music video.

In the music video, Hadfield covers the song “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.  He revised the song a bit while playing a guitar solo and floating around the ship.

Below is a screenshot of a tweet that Hadfield sent out:

As an avid guitar player and singer, Hadfield recorded a song on the International Space Station. It was posted on YouTube Christmas Eve. The name of the original song that he released is called “Jewel in the Night.” Last month, Hadfield performed with Ed Robertson and the rest of the Barenaked Ladies band and the Wexford Gleeks from Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts, who were all at the CBS studios in Toronto. The name of the song that they performed in Toronto was “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing).”
