Astronaut Scott Kelly was brought safely home last night after spending nearly a year in space. He was primarily in space to study himself to learn about how human bodies change in space. He even has an identical twin who stayed back on Earth to compare results. But what else was he doing for so long up on the International Space Station? He actually kept a pretty good record on Twitter.

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.
