Mythbuster’s Adam Savage is known for his fantastic prop building skills and love of costumes. This year, he raised the bar—with a real astronaut, in an astronaut costume
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.
Remember Chris Hadfield's goosebump-inducing cover of "Space Oddity?" Well, after the Canadian astronaut's one-year agreement with David Bowie expired this past May, the video — which had amassed 23,489,187 hits — was taken down from YouTube.

This is, hands down, the sweetest thing you'll hear today. A five-year-old named Timor from British Columbia has been having trouble sleeping because he worries about the Voyager space probe. Won't it get lonely? What if it crashes? So the CBC arranged for him to get some reassurance.
ABC is making a "family friendly" comedy inspired by Col. Chris Hadfield's memoir An Astronaut's Guide To Life On Earth, which sounds adorable. However, the main character had better have one excellent mustache, or we walk.

When Chris Hadfield sang his cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" aboard the International Space Station, he didn't have any puppets with him. The folks at Glove and Boots have remedied that oversight with this spoof video.
2013 is almost over — but before we say goodbye lets say thank you to the people who made this year the best year. Seriously, without this list of breakout actors and brand new faces we would be lost, bored, or have nothing to GIF. Here is our complete list of the best breakout stars of 2013.
The amazing Chris Hadfield saw Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity movie and he thought it was extremely well done... except for a certain lack of adult diapers, as he told Conan O'Brien on Conan last night. I'm afraid I'm with Conan on this one; I appreciate any movie's attempt at accuracy, but I also appreciate not seeing…
Former ISS Commander and perennial blower-of-minds Chris Hadfield announced last week that he'd be conducting a Halloween contest for best astronaut costume. I THINK WE HAVE OUR WINNER, PEOPLE.
Earlier this year, astronaut Chris Hadfield blew our minds with the most epic cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity," ever performed. Now, he's gone and done himself up Bowie-style for the cover of Maclean's, and it is the definition of perfection.
Yesterday's sad news about astronaut Chris Hadfield's surprise retirement made me wonder what was the most remarkable performance of the Canadian astronaut during the time he spent on the International Space Station.

What's the illustrious Chris Hadfield – former commander of the International Space Station – been up to since departing low-Earth orbit?
