  1. This guy is the Rockstar of NASA. And he’s Canadian!

    • NASA and CSA work very closely together and have for years.

      The Canadarm is just one example.

      ISS really does live up to its name. I suspect that, ultimately, our push into space will be the one thing that unites this planet — just as Roddenberry predicted.

  2. You should post his version of Space Oddity… from space!

  3. that man is awesome! hope everything goes well tonight with his return!

  4. Its not streaming :(

    • Streaming will begin at 9:30pm EST.

  5. Why haven’t some of our US astronauts been so informative. This man is great and gives what the life is on space.
