Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has served the Internet and nerd community well while on the International Space Station, creating many entertaining and educational viral videos directly from Space.

Before his return, he thought it fitting to end with some music. Obviously, few songs are more appropriate to cover in Space than David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

This is also happens to be a world record as the first music video recorded on the ISS and in Space in general.

The best, most advanced visual effects and computer graphics can’t compete with a real zero gravity environment.

Few scenes can trump Hadfield singing, “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing left to do,” with a very blue Mother Earth literally behind him.

The resulting music video is truly stunning, and has instantly caught viral fever, already appearing on CBSNews, CNet, and TheVerge.
