Simply Equine : I did a Project on David, He’s going to the ISS and he’s amazing I love space

giggleherz : Hadfield was supposed to be the last ticket to the station. Who gets to make the decision that Canada needs to spend fifty million to fly someone to the station?

King Peter : will he be trained to drill 2mm holes in soyuz's cargo hold. No but seriously, Was the hole made before leaving to the ISS or by someone on the ISS, and was that person found and restrained

Kelly Sexton : Amazing

Fortnite Gamer : Can you plzzzzzz SHOW US A TOUR THROUGH THE ISS

dreamagery : He is not going anywhere. Space is fake and Earth is flat. Look it up. Such a freaking liar. Ask him what happens when you hit the firmament. Wake up people. You're in a snow globe.

Mr. Ace : Let's see if he compares to what Hadfield did in orbit.

Cool Sheep : 😐

Rory Cowper : Just wondering how do you get a space station into space?

wkdravenna : Please take the Canadian flag off, it's a human achievement has nothing to do with Canada. How offensive to people in the rest of the world.
