Not to Miss: An Astronaut Who Tweets Dazzling Photos from Space


Chris Hadfield might be the hippest astronaut yet.

He shares recordings from space on Soundcloud, chats with William Shatner on Twitter, and plays guitar shows from the International Space Station.

Best of all, he shoots and tweets jaw-dropping photos of Earth from space every. single. day.

Sure you’ve seen a photo from space before, but not like this. Chris’ poignant tweets show us what it’s really like to have a daily view of Earth from far, far above.

Here’s a sampling of some of the best! (Word is he shoots with a Nikon and a 400mm lens.)

If you’re lucky, you could even get featured in one of his photo challenges! Chris will be in space through May 2013, so keep an eye out for more daily photos (see past ones on his Tumblr & Facebook).

Wanna shoot your own space photos? DIY it with a weather balloon or reverse it with this NASA tutorial on how to shoot the ISS from home. Also, the official Chris Hadfield photo contest.
