    He’s taken some amazing images of the flooding we have in Australia at the moment:

    So, is  Hadfield the best, most dedicated earth-photogropher of all the astronauts ever?  I know those people have a lot to do up there. But this guy is off the hook when it comes to amazing earth photos. 

  3. “High Flight”

     Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
     And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
     Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
     of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
     You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
     High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
     I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
     My eager craft through footless halls of air….

     Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
     I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
     Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
     And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
     The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
     - Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
    ~John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

    Pretty darn cool; but I guess he needs a lot of help to get his camera that high up.

  5. I also posted my top pics from Hadfield recently, check it: http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/340223
