Col. Chris Hadfield’s stunning view of snow-covered Canada from the Space Station
In the lead-up to New Year’s Eve, Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield grabbed his camera and staked out a spot in the viewing cupola of the International Space Station hoping to glimpse his home country in winter and maybe spot some faint sparkles of New Year’s fireworks emanating from Earth. He only left Earth on Dec. 19, blasting off from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, in a Russian-built Soyuz capsule bound for a five-month mission. A veteran of two space shuttle missions, in March Col. Hadfield is slated to become the space station’s first Canadian commander. (Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield/NASA)
