Retired astronaut Chris Hadfield helps debunk (and confirm!) some common myths about space. Is there any sound in space? Does space smell like burnt steak? Is NASA working on warp speed?

ONE STRANGE ROCK airs Mondays at 10/9c on National Geographic.

      And to think, it only cost about $26,000 to send that guitar to space! ;-)

      Ok we can't freeze ourselves but frogs do it every year (in Scotland anyway) and they're living tissue. Actually frogs have a couple of cool things they do that we can't, like lysis of their tails, couldn't this be used to reabsorb tumours? Also what do they have that acts as antifreeze to stop their cells bursting when the interior water expands due to freezing? If we had that we could freeze ourselves. I think frogs have a lot to teach us but not if we're going to cut them up...we are a bad animal as William Burroughs said....we always mess everything up.

      I plan to take his master class on Space Exploration at www.masterclass.com. It cost $90 and has about 28 lectures. He's very engaging and explains complex ideas in a layman's understanding.

      Tom Waits sometimes asks his audience, "What does the moon smell like?" He allows a few replies such as "cheese," and then he says, "Fireworks! Think about it: we've been shooting them up there for thousands of years."

      Nothing can explode in space though... there is no oxygen to ignite the fire. No oxygen = no fire...

      Globeheads: They love their precious
      Masonic fairy tales. They are the defenders of hairspray, wax, dark underwater swim pool sets,
      and a lego style moon rover made of tinfoil, shower curtain rods, and paper mache.
      They love their Freemasonic computer-generated images, curved fisheye lenses, blue chroma key virtual cameras,
      green screens, NASA Hollywood studio actors, and actresses, and suspension cords.
