    Remember Col Chris Hadfield, the Astronaut who bought us great pics of Ireland from space and more importantly the video of himself covering David Bowie's Major Tom song in the space station?

    Well it's been taken down off YouTube within the next 12 hours as he only had a 1 year licence from Bowie's recording company

    What a pity, over 22 million views. Watch it for one last time here.

    A big regret of mine is that i only started following Hadfield's exploits for his last month, wish i'd been there from the start.

    The guys up there now are really missing an opportunity

    I prefer the one where he's on a spaceship rather than this one where he's surrounded by space cadets.
