Astronaut Chris Hadfield To Be 2013 Calgary Stampede Parade Marshall

[twitter]He said yes!

In search of a parade marshall for the 2013 Calgary Stampede, the Stampede Committee started pitching Chris Hadfield via Twitter yesterday and YouTube today.

Of course they would go to Twitter to pitch the man, that’s where he’s made his name and spread awareness of his mission. His daily photos of the planet are a chance to look in the interstellar mirror that we rarely see.

His Twitter conversation with William Shatner was pure geeky genius. And now, again, Commander Hadfield has a wonderful Twitter conversation that has raised cheers.

“Space suit, white hat, cowboy boots – I’ll be ready to ride anything that stays below 8km a second,” he reponded to the original idea.

Then, after the formal invitation was made, Canada’s biggest star accepted.
