As part of YouTube's year in review that highlighted the site's most popular videos, the company has compiled a list of categories so viewers don't have to watch that "What Does the Fox Say?" video again. Here are the site's picks for the top 10 videos in their "Geek" category, which feature singing astronauts, robots, comic book characters and Harrison Ford.

#10: San Diego Comic Con 2013: Giant Robot Storms Geek Week

#1: Space Oddity

The top "geek" video of the year comes from Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield, who redefined videos from space this year. While onboard the International Space Station, Hadfiled created a bunch of videos discussing many cool things, but this video, in which he revised David Bowie's song "Space Oddity" to discuss life on the space station, garnered more than 19.4 million videos. It was definitely the best music video set in space this year (although I'm not sure if Sandra Bullock was singing in "Gravity").
