I’d say Steve Swanson is the coolest dude on Earth, but that wouldn’t be factually correct. The NASA astronaut is currently on board the International Space Station and he thought it’d be cool to take some Instagram photos for us landlocked people.
Considering his current surroundings it was only appropriate he dressed for the occasion. In one picture he was sporting a Firefly t-shirt that reads “Shipping & Logistics: Everything’s Shiny,” with a little blue planet appearing in the background.
For his follow up selfie, Swanson changed into some Star Trek flair, declaring his allegiance for the Klingon Empire. Hopefully he just likes the symbol and won’t betray us humans.
This wasn’t the first time Swanson has shown off his nerdiness. On his first mission to the ISS in 2007, he brought along the first and only season of Firefly as well as its movie companion Serenity which he intentionally left behind in the International Space Station library. However, one big question still remains for Steve Swanson: who is your favorite Doctor?
