I don’t normally pay attention as to who is on the International Space Station and what they are doing up there.
Not until this tweet exchange between Canadian astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield in space and one of my favorite actors (on Earth, I assume), William Shatner, caught my attention, that is.
Paying homage to Captain Kirk rocketed this astronaut from meh to pretty darn cool, so I started following his tweets ~ which he updates about every hour.
Here are a few of the many cool twitter pics he has sent from the ISS:
He also interacts with his followers and lets us all know what he is doing up there. He exercises, he works, he takes pics, he talks to us, he makes educational videos:
I think it’s safe to say that Commander Chris Hadfield is setting the stage and the standard for future astronauts, wouldn’t you?
Follow him at @Cmdr_Hadfield.
Do you follow Commander Hadfield? What would you like to see him tweet about? Tweet him ~ I bet he’ll answer. If he does, come back and share!
