I am beginning to think that Astronaut Garrett Reisman, who is currently orbiting the Earth in the International Space Station, is the coolest astronaut since that guy who stepped on the ole’ Moon, at least in terms of Geek-cred.

Apparently, he just couldn’t wait until he got back home to Earth in June. And as far as I know, this is the first time this has ever happened.
