If you haven’t been keeping up with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, you need to catch up. This guys has been tweeting from space and has become an Internet star. He’s posted images, videos and some great one liners while aboard the International Space Station. Giving us a behind the scenes look of what it’s like to be someplace that very few human beings have ever been. This guy is all kinds of awesome and he continues to be one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter.
As their mission to the space station was winding down, Hadfield made a video of him covering David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” And he did it from space. Which is rad in so many ways.
Virgin Galactic needs to hire this dude pronto and make him the cornerstone of their space travel campaign. We have the most interesting man in the world campaign, maybe he could be the most interesting man in space.

The Arsenal midfielder has made a successful return from a long-term right ankle injury this season but he sat out six games from early March to monitor a left ankle problem.
Arsène Wenger and the Club’s medical staff have managed Wilshere’s appearances since then – he has played five times without completing 90 minutes. The revision of the surgery to the right ankle is not unexpected and will require a few weeks rehab but Wilshere is expected to play a full part in Arsenal’s pre-season.
However, he will sit out England’s forthcoming friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.
“Jack will have small, mild surgery,” explained Wenger. “It is a very small, small, small one. It is to remove a small pin. It will not be a problem.
“He will need very minor surgery, but we manage that as far as we can until the end of the season. At the moment, we use him only in games when I feel he is really needed.
“He won’t be available for England in the forthcoming friendlies, but he will be back for pre-season. Of course he is disappointed to miss the England game in Brazil, but he will go next year [to the World Cup finals]!”
It is with regret that Manchester City Football Club announces that Roberto Mancini has been relieved of his duties as Manchester City Manager.
This has been a difficult decision for the owner, Chairman and Board to make and it is the outcome of a planned end of season review process that has been brought forward in light of recent speculation and out of respect for Roberto and his extensive contributions to the Football Club.
Despite everyone’s best efforts, the Club has failed to achieve any of its stated targets this year, with the exception of qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League. This, combined with an identified need to develop a holistic approach to all aspects of football at the Club, has meant that the decision has been taken to find a new manager for the 2013/14 season and beyond.
Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “Roberto’s record speaks for itself and he has the respect and gratitude of Sheikh Mansour, myself and the Board for all of his hard work and commitment over the last three and a half years. He has clearly also secured the love and respect of our fans. He has done as he promised and delivered silverware and success, breaking the Club’s 35-year trophy drought and securing the title in 2012. I would like to personally and publicly thank him for his dedication to the progress that he has overseen and for his support and continued friendship.”
Assistant Manager Brian Kidd will take interim responsibility for the remaining two games of the season and the post-season tour to the United States.
With the recent announcement that Sir Alex Ferguson is retiring and today’s news that Roberto Mancini has been sacked at Manchester City, it is now set that the three top finishing teams in England will all have new managers next season. And each of them are leaving for different reasons.
Sir Alex is retiring
Roberto Mancini was fired
Rafa Benitez was only an interim manager
It’s really interesting to think about how much change will be taking place amongst these three massive clubs going into next season. Changing managers can be a tough thing to do. They need time to settle in, get familiar with their new club and start implementing their system. Players also need time to adjust to the new manager and this can take quite some time to happen. Plus think about some of the Manchester United players. Some players have never played first team football for a manager other than Sir Alex. That is going to quite a transition for some of these guys.
We already know who will be taking over at Manchester United, and it is widely being reported that Manuel Pellegrini will be taking over at Manchester City. So that leaves Chelsea. Everyone is speculating that Jose Mourinho will be returning to the Blues. If all this plays out, it’s kind of an extension of what we have known in recent years with these clubs. Manchester United will be with a coach who is in the SAF mold, Man City will continue to look for foreign coaches to bring in and Jose will return to Chelsea. So big changes but there will a familiarness should things pan out this way.
The question that will be on everyone’s mind, is who will come in and have the most positive and immediate impact on their club? Will the new coaches stick around for awhile? Will City and Chelsea find some stability in their managerial department? Will David Moyes be at Manchester United as long he was at Everton? Lots of questions to be answered at clubs that have little margin for errors.
