It is believed to be the first music video recorded in space

You may not be able to find music videos on MTV anymore, but you can find them in space. 

Chris Hadfield, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS), recorded what is believed to be the very first music video in space. 

Hadfield, who has spent five months on the ISS, recorded a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and released it on YouTube. He even added some of his own lyrics like "Ground control to Major Tom, lock your Soyuz hatch and put your helmet on."

Hadfield is returning to Earth today on a Soyuz spacecraft, which will land in Kazahkstan. 

Bowie even tweeted about the video, saying "CHRIS HADFIELD SINGS SPACE ODDITY IN SPACE! 'Hallo Spaceboy...'"

Check out the video below, which has already received 1.5 million views:

So, wonder if they procured the broadcast rights to the song. How long before the RIAA issues take down notices and sues Chris Hadfield, NASA and the ISS.

Do those laws apply in space?

That's an excellent question.

Bowie himself owns the rights to all his music under his own label Rykodisc and others.

So the RIAA can suck it. If Bowie says this is cool, which he has, it's all good.

Which is the way all music should be. Owned by the creator, not some corporation.

Some people who were in Bowie's live band actually worked on the arrangement and mixing.

Vocals and guitar were recorded with a mic plugged into an iPad using Garage Band. The audio recorded in space was uploaded to SoundCloud, and the rest of the instrumentation was done on Earth, again by people who have performed with Bowie.

On top of all that Bowie tweeted it. I'm sure this will be fine. :)
