Chris Hadfield gets up to all kinds of shenanigans, which we’ve outlined below, but his actual job is commanding the ISS. At some point he’ll also operate the Canadaarm2 to catch an unmanned supply drone and command a space walk. It’s not all floating space nuts.
1. Post videos of floating nuts
NASA should look into product placement.
2. Drop the puck at the Leaf’s home opener
Unfortunately, he didn’t wing Bettman.
3. Tweet with Captain Kirk
The most interesting thing Shatner’s done since his roast.
@williamshatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we’re detecting signs of life on the surface.

And then Buzz Aldrin went and stole his thunder.

4. Tweet space pictures
Seriously, are you following @Cmdr_Hadfield on twitter?

5. Explain how to clip nails in zero gravity
Grooming waits for no gravity.
6. Play guitar
He’s probably most known for his Canadian Tire song, but we’d really, really like to hear his “Freebird.”
