It was the video that made him famous, but now it has to come down.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is pulling his "Space Oddity" video from YouTube on Tuesday.

The video, which has more than 22 million views, was uploaded on May 12, 2013, and Hadfield only had permission to run it for one year.

However, Hadfield's son, Evan, told Mashable that they will try to revive the video in some form, though it's not guaranteed.

"We are working on getting it back up, but there are few promises with something as complicated as videos from space," Evan Hadfield said.

In the video, Hadfield, who was living on board the International Space Station at the time, strums his guitar as he belts the David Bowie lyrics while floating around in zero gravity.

"Space Oddity" was truly the launch of Hadfield's stardom, which only grew when he returned to Earth. The Canadian commander has since written a book and now tours the world, speaking about what it's like to live in space. He also performs "Space Oddity" here on Earth every now and then.


RIP Space Oddity.

While we'll never see Hadfield's full HD version in all its glory after today — unless he does find a way to legally re-upload it — we'll always have the remix...

And the Earth version...
