Oh, you thought your trip photos from Cancun were great for Facebook? Sorry, next to Col. Chris Hadfield — who is posting his Facebook photos from space — your pics aren’t that special.
Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut on the International Space Station, is one of the most social savvy spacemen ever. He recorded a moving Christmas song on the ISS and posted it to SoundCloud. He’s taken part in a Google+ hangout from the ISS. Now he’s hosting his own cooking show from space.
Another part of Hadfield’s experience with communicating to the world below is frequently posting to Facebook and Twitter. On Twitter, he’s amassed more than 418,000 followers and on Facebook, he’s attracted about 44,000 likes.
His Facebook posts have gotten especially interesting in the past few weeks, with plenty of amazing photography from the International Space Station. The picture above, for example, is the view at night of Budapest from space.
Check out more awesome photos that Hadfield has posted recently in the gallery below.
