    Available once again for all the galaxy to enjoy… Space Oddity in space.

    Bowie himself loved it, posting on Facebook that it was “possibly the most
    poignant version of the song ever created”

    *Versión revisada del Space Oddity de David Bowie, grabada por el
    comandante Chris Hadfield a bordo de la Estación Espacial Internacional.*
    *Cuando se grabó la versión se obtuvo autorización del autor y el editor
    para permitir su reproducción libre y gratuita, gracias también a la
    Agencia Espacial Canadiense. Transcurrido ese año el vídeo fue eliminado
    para cumplir con el acuerdo legal. Ese mismo día nos pusimos a trabajar
    para volver a obtener el permiso legal y poder volver a publicarlo. Pero el
    proceso legal es lento y ha de llevarse con cuidado. Hoy tenemos permiso
    para publicar durante dos años más el video, libre y gratuitamente.*

    Os recomiendo que la veáis.. es francamente buena..
