Ground control to major strum: ISS's Hadfield sings Space Oddity

Crooner Chris in high-altitude homage to Bowie

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Vid Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has marked the end of his stay on the International Space Station by releasing his high-altitude version on David Bowie's Space Oddity.

Cmdr Hadfield has been aboard the orbital outpost since December last year, and commander of Expedition 35 since March. He handed over control of the station to Expedition 36 commander Pavel Vinogradov yesterday, and will return to terra firma shortly.

On Saturday, Hadfield's fellow Expedition 35 members Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn ventured outside the ISS to replace a pump controller box that was leaking ammonia coolant. Last night a NASA official said: "Mission Control ran the new pump while the spacewalkers watched for any ammonia snowflakes, but so far there have been no new signs of a leak." ®
