borg: In 20 days " he has tallied more than 3,000 tweets, sending back photos and sharing experiences, on Twitter. "
So he's just a space tourist and not up there to do any actual work?

3000 tweets in 20 days is 150 tweets a day. If he has a 15 hour day, that's 10 tweets an hour. You can knock that out in 5 minutes and then you have 55 minutes to play Minesweeper.

/I expect that's so high because he's been doing PR via Twitter. Astronauts have been doing interviews while in space for a long time now. It's part of the job.

Met Chris Hadfield once back when he was still Major Hadfield, and he was awesome. Just the warmest, friendliest, smartest guy.  And I think his son or nephew is a farker?
