Thanks for all the fish, Chris Hadfield. You made us all care about space after many decades of not caring.

Here he is earlier today strolling into the Canadian Space Agency.

ā€œIā€™m making good on a promise I made my wife nearly 30 years ago ā€” that yes, eventually, we would be moving back to Canada,ā€ said Hadfield.

No more being a Space Oddity for Hadfield. [CBC via Universe Today]
