Sadly, David Bowie has left the planet, but we still have his music, including the musician’s own favorite cover of his hit song “Space Oddity,” recorded by astronaut Chris Hadfield in a unique location.
A titan of music and culture has passed on, and musicians will undoubtedly continue to pay tribute to David Bowie’s catalog for years to come.
But it will be difficult for them to match the magic of Chris Hadfield’s 2013 cover of “Space Oddity” recorded aboard the International Space Station.

Bowie himself called it “possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created” at the time.
