Several months ago, Chris Hadfield became the first man to record a song in space and now the astronaut has released a cover singing David Bowie's iconic hit Space Oddity. The video that Hadfield has posted to his YouTube account has garnered a staggering 7.9 million views in just two days.

Hadfield covers the song from the International Space Station where he has been for some time now as something of an homage to the ending of his stint in space. Fans of Hadfield and Bowie alike are sure to be overjoyed to see and hear the iconic song -- which centers around space travel -- actually sung in space.

Landing back on Earth yesterday in the Soyuz capsule, Hadfield will likely experience something of a rockstar welcoming due to his awesome recordings while orbiting the planet. Stats for Orbiting Astronaut Song Covers Trending: Older & Mild
