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:

That might be the best youtube video i've ever seen. It's nice to see that no matter how screwed up things get here there are still some truly incredible things going on. I actually got a little bit choked up watching that.
