Captain Kirk speaks to the International Space Station, cool.

This should be an informative and illuminating topic of life on the space station and also educational.

Perhaps Mr. Shatner and Chris Hadfield will perform a duet ???

This started when Mr. Shatner began tweeting to the ISS a couple weeks ago, and this video broadcast is likely to be followed in a lot of places. About 1700 people are linked at the moment.

Hadfield is certainly doing a great job popularizing space through the use of social media and I am glad that Captain Kirk has taken an interest as well.

I would personally prefer to hear from Captain Picard ( Patrick Stewart)
even though he is not Canadian

I think it is fantastic that they got William Shatner to converse with a genuine space explorer. The work that William Shatner and the rest of the stars did on Star Trek, opened the minds of a generation to the possibilities presented by the space industry, a possible future to aspire to.

The people who go out to space and live on the ISS, those who are planning to go to Mars, despite the massive danger involved with any such enterprise (I had to, I am terribly sorry but I couldnt resist), are forging the glimmering edge of a new frontier (I have started, so I might as well go on), and deserve our respect in spades.

The reason I think it is fantastic that these fellows have conversed in this manner, is that it provides a firm link between the possibilities that Star Trek showed us, and the realities we face today. This is vital, because in times such as those we see before us, it is all to easy for some to loose sight of the desired result of our exploration of space. Those of us who value the search for understanding, by way of exploration realise that our future as a species may one day rely on our knowledge of space, and travel within it.

Anything, no matter how apparantly cheesey, that cements that link between the fiction of the past, and the fact of the future in the minds of the people, cannot be a bad thing for that reason.

Hey, he was hopping galaxies when Picard was in diapers.
