      Hmm... If he still wanted to stay in the US, he could always aim for Cicely, AK.

    Life on Earth

    I suppose that Chris Hadfield is one of the few men that truly know what it means to live the "burden of life on earth".

    Wise move.

    Well, 20 years of service and former ISS commander - his astronaut career was already at its peak.

    I predict some very nice job offers from the various private space ventures. Perhaps he will be the first man sent to Mars, who knows...

    I wish him good luck in his new endeavours.

      The first man on Mars was John Boone, don't we all know that?

    A Sarnia Homecoming is Due.

    Those of us in Chris' hometown of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada are looking forward to his return and the monstrous welcome back party we will have for him. I promise to lift a pint of the black stuff just for the Reg when we do.:)

    ...we already renamed the airport here after him (several years ago) so when he flies into Chris Hadfield Airport he will know he is home.

      Never understood why it's such an honour to have a building that everybody hates so much named after you:

      Before we can get to Disneyland kids we have to queue for 3hours at Chris Hadfield Airport

      We were stuck for 6hours becuase of a delay at Chris Hadfield Airport

      Snow at Chris Hadfield Airport has meant a 2nd night for travelers sleeping on the floor.
