Chris Hadfield had us riveted with his stream of updates from the International Space Station. We learned so much about life in space, not just from someone who had been there, but from someone while they were still there. We were aShow More Summary
Today at 12:00 PM EDT J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Trek Into Darkness will have a Google Hangout with astronauts, including Chris Cassidy, one of the astronauts aboard the International Space Station who recently went on a space walk to fix an ammonia leak on the station. Show More Summary
Chris Hadfield launched to the International Space Station on December 19, 2012. In March of this year he became the first Canadian commander of the ISS. While serving on the ISS, Hadfield has recorded music, posted pictures and videos, and engaged the world through social media in an unprecedented way. He returns to Earth tonight, and you can watch the live feed right here.
There's an ammonia leak on the International Space Station, and at the time of this writing astronauts Christopher Cassidy and Tom Marshburn are on a spacewalk to fix it. So far they've reported there's "no smoking gun" in terms of where the leak is coming from, but their suits feature cameras, so you can watch the whole thing streaming live, and that's amazing.
Chris Hadfield is definitely one of our favorite astronauts, and as part of his stay on the International Space Station he's been explaining how stuff works up there and performing experiments. This particular video was shot before the...Show More Summary
An ammonia leak in the system that cools the International Space Station may be more severe than initially thought, say officials familiar with the situation. Ground crews are working overtime to try and determine the cause of the leak, and emergency spacewalks that will let astronauts on board diagnose -- and ideally fix -- the problem are being scheduled for the coming days.
We don't have very many details at the moment, but International Space Station Commander and Canadian superhero Chris Hadfield just tweeted this image from space. It shows a small hole in the ISS solar array from what Hadfield called "a small stone." He said he was glad it missed the hull. For the record, we're glad it missed the hull too.
Look, this isn't high art or anything, but Chris Hadfield breaking down the water recycling on the International Space Station is mildly fascinating. Also, yes, by "water recycling" I do mean "turning urine into drinking water." This...Show More Summary

It should come as no surprise to learn that we here at Geekosystem quite enjoy Chris Hadfield and his antics on the International Space Station. Sometimes he does really amazing things, and sometimes he wrings out a washcloth in space. It sounds silly, but it's actually kind of mesmerizing to watch.
International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield isn't done with informing us about everything we ever wondered about when it comes to living in space. The man's basically made it his responsibility to answer all kinds of questions...Show More Summary
Physicists and astronomers have hypothesized the existence of dark matter for decades, but evidence for the substance (if we can call it that?) has been scant at best -- until now, that is. The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer experimentShow More Summary
It's Easter Sunday here on Earth, but International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield wanted to bring the celebration to his crew, so he hid some Easter eggs on the ISS. I don't know why we even bother doing stuff that's not in space anymore.
The International Space Station's Expedition 34 came to a successful end on Saturday when three members of the crew safely touched down near the town of Arkalyk in Kazakhstan. Shortly after landing, the crew was greeted at Kustanay Airport by women who appear to be cosplaying as pretty obscure Kazakh folk characters.
Tomorrow's looking like a perfect day for a rocket launch in Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX's second NASA-commissioned flight to the International Space Station is scheduled to take off in the morning. The mission will deliver a Dragon...Show More Summary
In what is quickly turning into a verifiable "thing," the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will be answering another round of your questions in a Google Hangout in just one hour. The Hangout, which willShow More Summary
The International Space Station is pretty tops, hosting all sorts of events like Google Hangouts and jam sessions that make you feel like you're really there. But for as cool as it is, it's a Johnny-come-lately on the space station scene,...Show More Summary
NASA had what we can only imagine was a very tense hour or so earlier this morning, as a computer malfunction cut off communication between the International Space Station and Mission Control in Houston as of 9:45 EST. The glitch appears to have been a pretty benign and easily fixed one, and the ISS crew was back on the air by 11:00 EST. Show More Summary
If there's something cool to be done aboard the International Space Station, then Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is going to do it. He's already talked to William Shatner, jammed with the Barenaked Ladies, and tweeted a Valentine while in space. Show More Summary
In what will most likely be the most Canadian thing you see today, unless there's a Degrassi marathon on tonight, here's a video of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield playing a song with the Barenaked Ladies, the most celebrated Canadian alt rock band of the mid-90's, and the Canadian show choir national champions the Wexford Gleeks.
