No Klingons, Yet: During a magical Twitter conversation today, science fiction met science fact. Actor William Shatner decided to drop Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfielda line. Usually, this wouldn’t be particularly newsworthy, except for the fact that Hadfield is currently living on the International Space Station — orbiting over 250 miles above Earth — and Shatner, well, is Captain James T. Kirk!
Hadfield arrived at the station on Dec. 21, 2012, and is currently serving as Flight Engineer for Expedition 34. He will take command of Expedition 35 when the Expedition 34 crew depart the orbiting outpost in March 2013. Hadfield will be the first Canadian to command the station.
