ISS Update: Chris Hadfield

The current crew of the ISS includes a Canadian – Chris Hadfield, who will be the first non Russian or American commander of the ISS from March to May.

His pre-flight interview is here and he is a prolific tweeter! Follow him at Cmrd_Hadfield to see just what he gets up to. To get a sense of how “Canadian” his sense of humour is, see his explanation of how to use a space toilet above.

He has been sending back the most terrific images from orbit and has even taken the time to carry out a science experiment for students for the Canadian Space Agency.
