hi all

hi all did a search and didnt see this

well i thought these were pretty cool. so I just wanted to share

Astronaut Chris Hadfield is making a name for himself as the International Space Station's first Canadian commander, the "Singing Spaceman" and Star Trek skipper William Shatner's Twitter buddy — but he's also one heck of a photographer.

Since his arrival at the station on Dec. 21, Hadfield has posted more than 100 pictures to his Twitter account, most of them showing beautiful views of Earth below. Between his official duties and his unofficial Earth-watching sessions, how does he find time to sleep?

"Yes, I should sleep more on station," he told one follower, "but the view from the window is like a perpetual magnet, too wondrous to ignore."

I certainly would find it hard to sleep while having the ability to roll over and see that out my window. I can't wait to find myself speeding around the heavens, awe struck.

Here's a real-time image gallery from the opposite side of the coin:
