Shatner asked, “@Cmdr_Hadfield Are you tweeting from space?”
Hadfield, who will take over the space station as Commander in March, responded, “@WilliamShatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we’re detecting signs of life on the surface.”
Shatner tweeted back, “I’m very impressed!”
The two have met in person, sort of. Hadfield once shared a photo of Shatner holding a paper cutout of the astronaut with the caption, "The last time @WilliamShatner and I met was in another dimension - 2D.”
“Star Trek’s” William Shatner had Trekkies in a tizzy this week as he traded tweets with astronaut Chris Hadfield, who is currently at the International Space Station.
