Media Advisory/REMINDER: Astronaut Chris Hadfield Speaks With William Shatner Live From Space

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Astronaut Chris Hadfield has been using social media to connect with the public. To this day, his most famous exchange is the one he had with legendary Canadian actor, author and former Captain Kirk, William Shatner.

On February 7, they will continue their discussion. This time, Astronaut Hadfield (via video) will speak to Mr. Shatner (on the phone). The conversation will take place in front of an audience of "space tweeps" gathered at the CSA for scientific presentations and demos. Tweeps will have the chance to ask questions in real-time to Hadfield. CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen will host this unique event.

Media representatives are invited to attend the event.

Journalists who cannot be on-site can watch the live webcast on the CSA Website and follow the hashtag #CSATweetup on Twitter.
