I cannot get enough of his pictures and videos from space. He even took a picture of Moose Jaw! Did you see his pictures of London? Amazing. Calgary is so lucky to have snagged him for the parade.

I feel certain that man has inspired a few kids towards a life of science.

Even I want to be an astronaut when I grow up now, Toccata! Apparently he was also the parade marshall back in 2001, but of course he's infinitely more famous now.

Over the last few days I've seen a lot of talk that Americans don't know who Chris Hadfield is, but we do! We're paying attention and we are also fascinated!

Of course you are, Lesley! Pay no mind to those who say you are not; it's just that old Canadian inferiority complex coming to the fore once again.
