Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station (ISS) as flight engineer sends updates via Twitter to over 400 000 followers. A greenockian tweeted him earlier asking him for a picture of Greenock on the west coast of Scotland. Apparently he offered to send some haggis up to the space station as well. The commander then posted the pictures of the west of Scotland. His tweet read: "The low, late afternoon February sun shines across the skinny waist of Scotland."
