Canada Will Command Space in 2013! No, its not William Shatner

September 3, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Although Captain Kirk is Canadian as well.  

 (Update: I just realized that some of my non-Canadian readers may not get that William Shatner is spoofing a Molson Canadian beer commercial. Here it is so you don’t feel lost :) 

But congratulations are in order for Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who was recently awarded the command of the International Space Station for a period in 2013.  

Chris Hadfield

Even though Canada has made some big contributions to the exploration of space , to be awarded command of the ISS is quite a big deal.  

So way to go Chris, this is quite an accomplishment.  

That moustache is pretty sweet too.
