The University of Waterloo says celebrity astronaut Chris Hadfield, known for his zero-gravity crooning on the International Space Station, will begin teaching at the school's aviation department sometime in the fall of 2014. 

However, the school doesn't have much information other than that.

"We don't have a core schedule for him or anything right now," University of Waterloo spokesman Nick Manning said Tuesday. 

"We simply don't know how often he will be on campus and exactly how many classes and whatever, but we do know and Chris has said he wants to be involved in teaching the aviation program and Ian McKenzie the director is just beside himself with excitement as a result."  

Before Hadfield makes his first appearance in the classroom the University of Waterloo, he'll be on-campus for a visit on December 3rd.
