And he does a credible job of it too! Also answers the question of how the body moves when strumming a guitar in space.

BTW, my dear Canadian friends. Capt. Hadfield is from Ontario and is the first Canadian to walk in space.

His most recent trip has been extraordinary and he has been a credit to Canada and the CSA/NASA.

Pretty wild coverage of his landing on the tv news this morning. It is a wild ride back from the ISS in the Russian capsule to be sure.

The Soyuz capsule is tiny (like a phone booth) and watching the footage of the astronauts being extracted from it in a field seemed very homey and down to earth!
