Commander Chris Hadfield is the first Canadian to take command of the International Space Station. He's also pretty much the most engaging astronaut ever and he's snapped some super cool photos of Victoria from outer space. If you aren't following his Twitter feed
, you're truly missing out. He's funny, smart and his YouTube videos are out of this world (sorry, some things aren't worth resisting in life). Plus, he has local connections. He studied at Royal Roads Military College and his mother-in-law, Gwen Walter, lives in Saanich. Cool beans.
