It’s obviously the small things that count when you are living on the International Space Station! The current ISS captain, Canada’s Commander Chris Hadfield, has been so much fun to have aboard. He loves to take photographs and he uses Twitter all the time. This morning he posted this photo of a floating onion and tweeted: @Cmdr_Hadfield: Space Onion - came up on the Progress resupply spaceship. We sliced it up and had it with everything - nice flavor!








If you love the magnificence of seeing Earth photographed from space (like I do), you should follow Chris Hadfield’s Twitter feed. He posts multiple photographs and writes about what he sees every day. His observations are a treasure.

The commander of the International Space Station, astronaut Chris Hadfield, sent down an Earth Day greeting from the International Space Station this morning. "Good Morning, World, and Happy Earth Day from orbit!" he wrote from his Twitter account (@Cmdr_Hadfield) on Monday. "One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."


He also sent this photograph, which he says is the robotic arm of the space station giving us a "thumbs up" for Earth Day.

The first Canadian commander of the space station loves taking photographs and videos of Earth. Commander Hadfield says that life on the ISS has changed his view of the Earth.

"If anything my respect and my concern and my love for the Earth has only been deepened by [having this] new perspective on the planet."
