Blizzard Entertainment Senior Composer II Glenn Stafford shared via Twitter a link to Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s music video titled: “Space Oddity”, recorded entirely on board the International Space Station.

Chris Hadfield became viral famous for uploading YouTube videos from the International Space Station. After his return back to Earth he retired on May 2013. As his parting gift, to millions of fans he posted this video

The music video is amazing unbelievable! It has been watched 17 million times in YouTube in just two months and a half.

Glenn Stafford shares credits for StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War along with many other Blizzard games.


Update: As Eredalis said in the comments below, the song was written by David Bowie. Below is the original music video of the David Bowie song “Space Oddity” from his promotional film, ‘Love You Till Tuesday’ (1969).

A bit of a easter egg: David Bowie was inspired by 1968 British-American film Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
