As if being an astronaut wasn’t enough, Canadian space rock star Chris Hadfield cemented his rep as a real-life Ziggy Stardust with an “adjusted” cover and music video of Brit rock icon David Bowie’s Space Oddity – a song about an astronaut overcome by the beauty of space. The video, posted to YouTube May 12, really speaks for itself.

Online reactions included one poster who voted Hadfield, “The coolest human ever to be born on this blue dot.”
