Photographer at play
For his photography ventures, Hadfield uses Nikon D2XS and D3S dSLRs, as well as a variety of lenses including the 400mm telephoto seen here. The astronaut -- a social-media hound with more than half a million followers on Twitter -- often shares his pictures captured from the Cupola module on the ISS. The small area features seven large windows in a 360-degree orientation. The setup includes 31-inch glass in the middle (the largest ever used in a spacecraft), a perfect place for snapping a spectacular shot.
Hadfield returns to Earth on May 14.
