Chris Hadfield's Twitter album
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is currently on an extended stay at the International Space Station. He'll be there until May; in March, he'll take over command of the station.
The 53-year-old Hadfield has been in regular communication with his 37,000-plus Twitter followers since his voyage began just before Christmas.
On New Year's Eve, he posted photographs of Canada as seen from above, including a shot of the snowy island of Montreal viewed from space. There are also some snapshots of life on the ISS on his Twitter account (@Cmdr_Hadfield). Here are just a few.
