When Chris Hadfield left the International Space Station, he performed a cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity for the world to enjoy. Unfortunately, the Canadian Space Agency only had a license to distribute the track for a year, and after that it had to be pulled from YouTube. Thankfully, all the parties concerned have been working together to un-knot the various legal issues concerning performance rights in the upper atmosphere. Now, the astronaut has taken to his blog to announce that the video has been given a two-year extension and can now be watched once again - unless, of course, you just ripped it the first time it was up, in which case you probably didn't notice that it was gone.
