I've been dying to watch this video all day, but ever since I accidentally upgraded to Windows 8.1 most embedded videos won't work in Firefox (yes, I reinstalled firefox, yes I ran it in safe mode without add ons). Anyway, is there a direct link to the video on youtube or such?

I love astronauts generally... then you show me a Canadian astronaut, a space gentleman, an Astro-Chiller, if you will excuse the preposterous neologism, and he's being a nerd about photography and polite to people who admire him? Well, gosh dangit, I'm gonna use some warm language to express my enthusiasm, begging your pardon.

Nah, fuck that Houston, this dude is an ice cold poop in a Lagrange orbit, space boss, zero degrees Kelvin, my man, counting heartbeats and dodging nose grease to get the shot.

I know ISS isn't at a Lagrange point, I'm just jazzed up with space enthusiasm and affection towards Canadians.

As there is no context, I think this was filmed during the Jasper Dark Sky Festival which itself sounds amazing and has now been added to my list.

Sweet Jesus I hate Microsoft.

And (being over 50) gravity.

Reid Wiseman, a U.S. astronaut, has been a lot of fun to follow on Twitter. He does a lot of photography and recently has been going nuts with an 800mm lens.

Should have said, he's on ISS now, and will be coming home in a couple of weeks.
