Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield spent five months in space — a time in which he gained international fame for his extensive use of social media while floating above Earth. But one of his most impressive accomplishments was his cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" — not only the first musical recording in space, but a cover Bowie called "possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created."

"Ashes to ashes, dust to star dust. Your brilliance inspired us all. Goodbye Starman." - Chris Hadfield
