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.

Here's the original video of "Dancing in the Street" performed by David Bowie and Mick Jaggar. Yeah...this actually happened.



Thank you, 80s.

This Is Funny, You Should Listen To It of the Day: San Francisco-based comedy troupe Killing My Lobster (previously) reconstructs the conversation between Major Tom and Ground Control using never-before-heard audio that you've never heard because they've only just recorded it.
