Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield recorded a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" from space aboard the International Space Station- which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. But the video, which was recorded back in 2013, was only allowed to exist on YouTube for a year, according to an agreement with Bowie.

Fortunately, the two have worked things out and the video has now made it's way back online.

Hadfield described this situation in a post on his website, and included an explanation for recording it in the first place:

"It was a chance to let people see where we truly are in space exploration. We're not just probing what lies beyond Earth - we inhabit it."

Prior to its removal, the video had picked up more than 23 million views.
