Millions of David Bowie fans were shocked and saddened to learn that the influential rock star had died of cancer yesterday. Throughout his career, Bowie’s influence on music, fashion and culture was felt across the world — and even in outer space.
One of the best tributes to Bowie is Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s stirring rendition of the singer’s 1969 single “Space Oddity,” recorded on board the International Space Station (ISS) in 2013.
Hadfield’s video of "Space Oddity" made history as the first musical recording in space and has been viewed on YouTube almost 28 million times.
