April 26, 2001: It’s casual Friday on the International Space Station, and none of us are invited.
When you're an astronaut living in microgravity, mundane tasks such as brushing your teeth, washing your hair, and running on a treadmill work just a tiny bit differently. How do you live, cook, clean, and exercise when you're not on Earth? These videos explain it all.
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield made his name doing space-bound covers of David Bowie, but ever since returning to Earth, he's been doing a stellar job of making us all jealous about his tenure in the ISS.
It feels like everything is going to hell, especially as a seemingly dreadful year comes to an end and winter keeps getting stronger. But, despite the continuous onslaught of bad news flooding media, there are many reasons to be optimistic about the future. Everyone's favorite astronaut Chris Hadfield explains.
The rumble of power just got stronger and more insistent as we heard the countdown in Russian through our headsets and then, "Pusk." Liftoff.
It's not the visuals. Awesome astronaut Chris Hadfield told Conan that Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity perfectly captured the spectacular beauty of space. This is a man who actually spacewalked, people! We gotta trust his opinion since we'll probably never see space. But one thing that wasn't realistic? Sandra Bullock's…
Here's our favorite astronaut and yours, Cmdr. Chris Hadfield, giving a simple, English language version of how going to the bathroom is complicated by being in space, the, ahem, dangers inherent in introducing poop to zero gravity environments. You might already know this stuff, or you might not, but Hadfield makes…
So our dear friend Cmdr. Chris Hadfield shared a horrifying piece of trivia this morning: Soyuz astronauts get two enemas before launch. Which is a little uncomfortable, but necessary because, uh, Soyuz restroom looks like this.
Thanks for all the fish, Chris Hadfield. You made us all care about space after many decades of not caring.
You thought Chris Hadfield turned his back on us when he left the ISS earlier this month, didn't you? For shame, internet patron, for shame. Hadfield may be safely back on Earth, but the otherworldly videos continue to surface. And in this one, you get to see him make himself a game of darts MacGyver style. In zero…
After inspiring all of us on Earth, Commander Chris Hadfield and crew have finally re-joined us here. The Soyuz space capsule landed safely at 10:31 PM EDT in Kazakhstan. Hadfield had spent 144 days on the ISS, 2,336 orbits around the planet and totaled up around 62 million miles. That's a lot of miles!
ISS Commander and mustachioed Canadian Chris Hadfield has given us no end of joys during his current five-month stint floating above our blue orb. But perhaps none of them is as touching—and just downright incredible—as his sendoff cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity."
When astronauts Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn left the ISS today to go fix a leaky ammonia pump all quicklike, everyone's favorite YouTubing Canadian Commander, Chris Hadfield, stayed inside to keep things going there.

Commander of the International Space Station and awesome-stronaut Chris Hadfield just finished a weeklong series called “Senses in Space,” where he describes what spending a long time in space does to each of your perceptions. And apparently, space is generally pretty bad for you. In the following five videos,…
Sure, there's no air in space. But once you've overcome that rather urgent deficiency, you've got to deal with another one: no water. Thanks to science, astronauts can solve that problem by just drinking pee. Zero-G YouTuber and ISS astrodinaire Chris Hadfield explains.
During his time aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Chris Hadfield has taken and shared some of the most amazing photos of our planet on his Twitter account. And in this video clip, he explains how he snaps those beautiful photos of Earth, and the wonderful camera equipment at his disposal.
Astronaut Chris Hadfield continues to make us all insanely jealous of the time he's been spending on the International Space Station with another video showing what day-to-day life is like orbiting the Earth. Except this time he shows what happens when you wring a soaking wet cloth in zero gravity, and the results are…
