This is a bit of a fun read, William Shatner tweeting with the ISS. The commander of the ISS, Richard Hadfield, is currently a Canadian which was a big thing here in the news before Christmas. There's one comment about Hadfield wearing a red shirt. grin

From CBC:


I figured SF media would be good for this as it involves the original Star Trek.

Anyone else notice that Commander Hadfield has a resemblence to Lt. Commander Montgomery "Scotty" Scott/James Doohan*? Could be the red shirt, which is safe to wear if you're Chief of Engineering.

*Another Canadian, IIRC.

Richard Hadfield? Am I in some sort of alternate universe?

(Funny anecdote: I once almost got my face bashed in by Chris Hadfield when he was opening a door on the way to some speech at the Museum of Civilizations)
