This is Commander Hadfield to Ground Control. I'm stepping through the door. And I'm taking down my "Space Oddity" cover video today-ay-ay-ay.

Last year, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield posted a video in which he covered David Bowie's hit "Space Oddity" from aboard the International Space Station as his ISS farewell. On Tuesday, Hadfield announced via Twitter that he had the rights to the song for one year, and that the year is up. Sometime Tuesday, the video will be taken down from YouTube, so now is your last chance to watch before this beautiful video floats far above the moon, never to return.
