William Shatner, James Tiberius Kirk himself, is scheduled to phone the International Space Station today at 10:40 ET (7:40, bright and early, for you West-Coasters). Watch it here, live on io9!

Shatner will be opening a hailing frequency to ISS astronaut and fellow Canadian Chris Hadfield to talk about life aboard humanity's orbital outpost (in the image up top, Shatner can be seen holding Hadfield's mustachioed likeness). The two have talked before over Twitter (in fact, Hadfield has swapped tweets with several members of Star Trek's cast), but have never spoken in real-time. We're expecting big things.
