Captain Kirk to contact spaceCanadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's creative side seems to be firing up the warp drive: He has sent out more than a dozen pictures of Earth as seen from space over the past couple of days. He's getting ready for an Earth-plus-space singing session on Friday, in collaboration with Barenaked Ladies' Ed Robertson. And speaking of warp drive, he'll be chatting with Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise, a.k.a. William Shatner, on Thursday during a webcast presented by the Canadian Space Agency.
It's a marvel that Hadfield, who flew up to the International Space Station in December and is due to become the station's commander next month, has any time left to do actual astronaut stuff. But apparently he does.
"Good morning, Earth! A full Monday of science experiments in colloid suspension, Biolab, and overnight fluid physics liquid bridge," he reported in an Google+ update. "But first, breakfast!"
Artistry, perspective and awe of the world we live in.

ETA: Ha Ha! Love William Shatner's tweet from last night...
"Ok gang! Busy day tomorrow gotta make a long distance call in the morning. Night!"

Because I am involved in mankind,
Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
