Los Angeles - It's being called the first music video made in space.

In an online video, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield sings the David Bowie song Space Oddity while floating around in zero gravity aboard the International Space Station.

Hadfield and US astronaut Thomas Marshburn are scheduled to return to Earth on Monday.

Hadfield posted the video as a farewell message to his Twitter fans as he prepares to return to Earth after a five-month mission as commander of the station.

Davie Bowie replied to Hadfield, tweeting "Hallo Spaceboy..."

The original Space Oddity was released in 1969, taken from the album of the same name.
