MOVE OVER COMMANDER Hadfield, there’s a new astronaut in town.

And by ‘town’ we mean ‘on the International Space Station’, and by ‘move over’ we mean ‘there will always be a place for you in our hearts’.

Anyway: Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano is currently orbiting our planet on the ISS, and he sent his greetings to Ireland via this photo of a sun-drenched Dublin.

He evidently understands Irish weather too. “I had to wait but it was worth it.”
