Meet Floaty

Chris Hadfield and Floaty: ISS BFFs

Commander Chris Hadfield is Floaty’s favorite friend.

Floaty loves GravityKit because he likes to see things through his helmet: Earth from orbit, the stars of the Milky Way, and Gravity Forms entries on his website.

Floaty was born to two loving parents in the International Space Station on a clear day in May, 2001. Every year, new people arrived. As Floaty met new friends, he learned that each of them was an astronaut. He marveled at the heroism and broad skill sets of the international crews. Floaty longed to be one of them.

Commander Chris Hadfield is one of Floaty’s best friends. While he was on board, Floaty enjoyed playing music together, food games in microgravity, and helping Commander Hadfield wash his laundry. The day before Commander Hadfield left for Earth, he pulled Floaty aside and told him the truth: that Floaty was born in a space suit, and that he had been an astronaut all along. That made Floaty very happy.

Floaty reached out to us when he heard we were working on GravityView. We are thrilled to work with him.

Letter from Floaty

February 23, 2014

Hi guys,
I’m hanging out here in the ISS Cupola, working on my site. I love viewing entries on my site, and I also love to meet people, so being your representative would be amazing. Are you in need of a spokesperson?

Come visit some time!
