As if being a famous astronaut weren't enough, commander Chris Hadfield is one of the hottest personalities on social media (at least he was during his time in Space). Hadfield, who was the first Canadian to be put in charge of the International Space Station, returned to Earth in May 2013 after being stationed in space since December. At the time of his return, he had more than 500,000 Twitter followers, and answered questions on one of the most popular Reddit thread's in the site's history.

Hadfield is a goldmine of information, and from space he's answered most everything you could hope to learn about what it's like up there. With insights from Hadfield's social media presence, here are 10 things you might not have known about space.
