Holy sh*t that's amazing.

Mods, you HAVE to greenlight this.

That was pretty. farking. cool.

He really needs to lose the porn 'stache, though.

Hey subby, you know how I know you've been on reddit today?

That was incredible.

every political party in Canada is jumping through hoops right now to find out which way this guy rolls in hopes of putting him on there team.

Sad to see him leave space, he's done more for space exploration PR in 6 months then NASA has done in 6 years.

Because reddit is the only other website on the internet?

Subby could have been watching TWiT.tv this afternoon too. That's where I first saw it.

Or following Chris via twitter and seen it as soon as it was posted.

Awesome!  And I rarely use that word.

2013-05-12 09:30:33 PM  
That was A LOT cooler than I was expecting it to be.  Really makes you wish you were there.  Chris may not have Bowie's pipes, but considering the fact that he's breathing stagnant, recirculated air I'm going to give him a pass on that.

I am very grateful to live in an age where something like this can happen.

An Astronaut's Advice:

i.imgur.com

"Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you'd be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don't let life randomly kick you into the adult you don't want to become."
  - Chris Hadfield, Commander, Expedition 35, International Space Station

I'm just gonna leave this here, because it's been making the rounds, and because I don't think anyone can put it better than he already has.

A Shambling Mound: Because reddit is the only other website on the internet?


No, but he's been doing fairly regular IAMA's and uploading other videos to reddit for a while now. He's kind of a big deal over there.
 
2013-05-12 09:32:00 PM  
Damn you, Mae Blacker Freeman.  It should have been me.  You lied to every wide-eyed child in the sixties and I will never forgive you for it.

Gotta watch to the very end...wasn't expecting that and I lol'd pretty hard.
Thanks subby.
 
2013-05-12 09:32:48 PM  
Almost too trite, but it works!  Much better than the compilation with the Bare Naked Ladies and children's choir, and that was cool simply for using the space station as a venue.

6 years? I'd say 40 years.

Chris Hadfield is kind of a big deal everywhere, chief.  At this point he's arguable the most famous space traveler since Collins, Armstrong, Aldrin, or Gagarin.

Oh my god.  My ovaries hurt.   I want to have his musical nerd babies.

Ya know, I never thought I'd come across a cover of that song which I took to more than  this one. Thank you, subby, for proving me wrong.

Hey now, watch it, buddeh!
 
2013-05-12 09:43:20 PM  
Neat, but couldn't watch to the end. Does he actually play the guitar at any point, or is it there just for spinning?
 
2013-05-12 09:44:15 PM  
It's a damn shame he's coming back down. How will I get my near-daily fix of our fair globe pictured from orbit? WHO'S GONNA PICK UP THE SLACK THIS MAN'S ABSENCE WILL LEAVE?

For all the Twitter nay-sayers out there, Chris Hadfield's feed is EXACTLY why Twitter works.
 
2013-05-12 09:44:26 PM

ArgusRun: Oh my god.  My ovaries hurt.   I want to have his musical nerd babies.


Me too, and I'm male and straight :-)

Actually met the guy once, when I was a steely-eyed missile man.    Impressed the hell out of me.

Well, twitter is a tool like say a hammer. You can use the hammer to bash your head in if you want. Or you can use it to build a tree house. Also hopefully NASA has learned a thing or two about public outreach, because while NASA is pretty OK at online public outreach he's been a lot more effective in my opinion.
 
2013-05-12 09:48:36 PM  
I am SO going to miss his many daily Facebook posts!   I do hope that he eventually publishes all his photos in a coffee book once he's Earth bound again.
 
2013-05-12 09:48:39 PM  
That was cool.  He has tried to share with earthlings what being in space means.  I think he is pretty damn special.  Safe trip home.
 
2013-05-12 09:48:48 PM  
I know a Chris Hatfield, who turned out pretty much the exact opposite of an astronaut on the ISS.

Weird. The difference was replacing the t the whole time.
