As many of you know, a Canadian is currently in space, in charge of the International Space Station. His name is Commander Chris Hadfield, and not only is he up there right now, but is letting us tiny Earthlings know about it!

Hadfield is also tweeting from space, sharing glorious photos from a viewpoint that many of us will never have the opportunity to see.

If you look here, you can see all the wondrous photos he has taken of every continent and make yourself feel simultaneously very small and yet so very large.

But that is not all Hadfield is doing up there. He is also doing science!

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) has its very own channel on YouTube and is constantly putting videos up there for Hadfield explaining how the ISS works, experiments that are going on and simple activities that become a bit of a chose in space - such as eating, shaving, sleeping and even crying!

Here are just a few examples of the videos (click here to see them all).
