Canadian commander Chris Hadfield has shared with the world his cover version of David Bowie's Space Oddity, which he recorded on the International Space Station.

The full video was posted on YouTube shortly before Hadfield handed over command of the space station to Russia's Pavel Vinogradov.

Hadfield has been on the International Space Station since December 2012 and in command of the vessel since March. He will now return to Earth.
