Space Oddity

I’ve had the privilege of meeting a few astronauts before. They really are amazing people: intelligent, motivated and creative. So this video from Commander Chris Hadfield is both awesome and unsurprising in its awesomeness.

(I know he’s Canadian, but I’m still putting this in the “America, fuck yeah!” category because … you know … space and stuff. Plus, I always agreed with what Lazarus Long said: Canada is a part of America where the people are too smart to pay taxes to Washington.)

    I can think of few things that would be harder to leave and go back to a “normal life”. Somehow, talking to your neighbor about the weekend-long troublehooting of his sprinkler system would be unbearable. “Yeah, well, I remember when I commanded the FUCKING SPACE STATION, we had this leak that if we didn’t get it fixed we would all fucking DIE!! I totally get where you’re coming from.”
