Quantumaniac is where it’s at - and by ‘it’ I mean awesome.

Over here, I post a ton of astronomy / math / general science in an attempt to make your brain feel good. My aim is to be as informative as possible, while posting fascinating things that hopefully enlighten us both a little to the mysteries of our truly wondrous universe(s?). Plus, how would you know if the blog exists or not unless you observe it?

Boom, just pulled the Schrödinger’s cat card. Now you have to check it out - trust me, it said so in an equation somewhere.

Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield to Retire

Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut who captivated the world with his photos and videos on social media from the International Space Station (ISS) and professional badass - is retiring. 

Cmdr Chris Hadfield, 53, says he is making good on a promise to his wife to move back to Canada after 30 years - effective July 3rd. 

The astronaut was the first Canadian to command the ISS. He returned from his third space mission in May. He has lived in Texas since he became a fighter pilot in the late 1980s and was later assigned to the Nasa Johnson Space Center in Houston by the CSA.

"I’ve had such an interesting career and after 35 years it’s time to step down," Cmdr Hadfield was quoted as saying by the CBC. "I’m the last astronaut of my class that’s still around."

"Chris Hadfield has inspired all Canadians, especially our next-generation of scientists and engineers," Chris Alexander, parliamentary secretary for defence, said in a statement.

"His exceptional career achievements make him a true Canadian hero and icon."
