The first Canadian astronaut to command the International Space Station has been plastering his experiences all over major social media platforms since his arrival 23 days ago. But Chris Hadfield has had an unseen helping hand behind those accounts — his son Evan.

Evan has been helping his father manage his Twitter, Facebook and Google+ accounts which have been fuelling international news agencies around the world.

CBC's Heather Hiscox interviewed Evan via Skype Thursday morning.
