    He makes me proud to be Canadian and he's from Sarnia which is about 2hrs north of me.

    Very interactive on Twitter answering questions and generous with photos. He 'took us all up there.'

    He was actually doing some studies related to bone and muscle in an anti-gravity environment which could only help us at some point waaaay into the future!
