Stop whatever you are doing and listen.

Commander Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency has been a in command of the 35th mission aboard the International Space Station. While there he's made quite quite good use of his downtime on the station to engage in a lot of social media outreach. He's traded tweets with the Star Trek cast, has done a number of Youtube videos and posted lots of wonderful images of the Earth from their vantage point.

Commander Hadfield's mission aboard the ISS is scheduled to be completed tomorrow, with the crew returning to Earth on a Soyuz capsule. And his sign off to his social media followers is a wonderful tribute to David Bowie's classic "Space Oddity".

 Yes ladies and gentlemen; the world's first music video from space.
