All hailing frequencies are open at the International Space Station. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been communicating via Twitter with the original rocket man, William Shatner AKA Captain Kirk.
“Are you tweeting from space? MBB (My Best, Bill),” Shatner tweeted his compatriot.
“Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we’re detecting signs of life on the surface,” Hatfield replied.
Hatfield added that the last time he met Shatner was “in another dimension – 2D.” A reference to a Photoshopped picture of celebrated canucks that was submitted to “The Chris Hadfield World Tour Photo Challenge.” The photo (below) was submitted by Anna (Montreal, Quebec) and can be found on page 20 of the entries. The winner receives a mission t-shirt signed by Chris Hadfield and a chance to virtually meet the astronaut via Webcast.
