Astronaut Chris Hadfield Sits in the Captain’s Chair

Colonel Chris Hadfield spent a fair amount of time on the International Space Station channeling David Bowie, but when he’s on Earth he chooses to play Captain Kirk. At least, that’s the impression we get from this photo of him sitting in a replica of the Enterprise‘s command chair. The cool prop belongs to Mythbusters‘ Adam Savage, who ordered a less-than-stellar version from eBay and then made it look more authentic.

Afternoon Roundup ponders the science of the DeLorean, goes adventuring with Noelle Stevenson, and watches Anna Kendrick choose… wisely.
