That's an above-average mustache.

Chris Hadfield is making a strong case for himself as coolest astronaut ever.  Between this stuff and his space-tweets, he's really going out of his way to connect to us groundfolk.

Rock on, space man.

I was hoping it would involve lasers

The Russians simply used a pencil.

Place a small piece of scotch ( or generic sticky on one side ) tape on the left and right side from the clippey part to the back hingey part and clip away. Waiting patiently for my NASA check.

With lasers, obviously.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: With lasers, obviously.


Red or blue? This is important.

UsikFark: Red or blue? This is important.


Red lasers, man.

You can't have evil blue lasers up in space. Mad science would break out, and you can't have that.

Well those cute grey fuzzy things would hulk out, get horns, and take a whip you you

I also farted on the subway once.

See, this is why I don't go into space to begin with.

I have a hard enough time with earthbound spiders.

I think the video was lost on me because I couldn't stop staring at his 0-G watch. Watching that thing float about his wrist was mesmerizing.

What if the air vents shut off before he gets around to vacuuming? Seems like an easy way to compound a problem.

He trims them and then says "ready for guitar playing". What? I purposely grow mine long for fingerstyle. Maybe he means his fretting hand and he plays left handed. At any rate, can't he just rip them or chew them off like most guys?

He's got a way to go to catch up with Don Pettit.

I was surprised when I saw this: "CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield." There's a confederate astronaut?

Lumpmoose: That's an above-average mustache.


But it proves he's an alien. Mustaches cannot grow in space. Aliens can grow mustaches, but not people.

The funny thing is, I didn't realize I was curious about such things until demonstrations for such things just, well, appear. It's kind of fun, really.

I met Chris last year, and have to say he is by far the most badass person on (or above) this planet. He was a test pilot with the Canadian/American Air Force/Navy (everyone wanted a piece of him) and one of his projects involved throwing an F-18 into a flat spin and determining the best way to recover (balls of freaking steel). Add to that the fact that he's played guitar at Carnegie Hall, learned fluent Russian in a matter of months and is still one of the most down-to-Earth dudes you will ever meet, and I think you'll agree he's far surpassed the requirements for hero status.

/man crush?

Ok, really...(as I mentioned before in a couple of threads, I'm drunk off my ass) Are those phuqers doing anything productive up there?

I wonder if I would know how to play If I tried to be an astranaut. Probably not.

I'm pretty sure I'd sooner watch a guy wiping his ass in space than cut his nasty fingernails in space...which begs the question..?

From the past week (in reverse chronological order)...

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Re-wiring the Laboratory. With all the racks tilted up for access, it was like cave diving - hence the headlight.

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Taking the new telescope out of the box - like weightless Christmas!

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Today we re-wired the US Lab, did organic compound analysis, had a fire drill, and I changed out the toilet solids tank. Now to exercise!

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Tomorrow I will talk with 800 students at Chris Hadfield Public School, hosted by @Astro_Jeremy. Kids always ask the best questions.

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Wednesday on Space Station - starting to rewire the labs for an upgraded communication system. Astronaut Cable Guy. Good Morning!

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
We're using Space Station this week to test ways to refuel satellites using robots

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Good Mon Morning, World! Today: start installing a new telescope in the US Lab window, finish H20 sampling, and run a colloids experiment.

Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield
Good Morning, Earth! Today in orbit: fluid physics resarch, cooling system checks, getting weighed, & a potential solar array problem. Fun!

We're also getting close to another bith of spaceman awesomeness:   The musical collaboration between Chris Hadfield, Ed Robertson, and schoolchildren in classrooms across Canada.

Get a video sneak peek here.  Warning- This collaboration is an overdose of Canadiana.  Reduce your maple syrup intake to compensate accordingly.

Lumpmoose: That's an above-average mustache.


Little known fact:  As part of their national duty, all Canadian males are RCMP reservists.  As part of that duty, they must be capable of growing a perfect cop 'stache on 30 days notice.  Anyone non-compliant gets their citizenship revoked and are cut adrift on an ice floe outside of Tuktuyuktuk.

Yep. haddie, I believe.
