Tweet from space leaves Blake Shelton nearly speechless

It's not too often that Blake Shelton is left speechless, but last week the singer seemed to be just that way and it was all thanks to a single out-of-this-world tweet. 

It all started on Saturday when the singer decided to send out a tweet to astronaut Mike Hopkins that read, "How's my man @AstroIllini tonight?"

Something you should know is that Mike Hopkins happens to be in space as we speak. As amazing and crazy as it sounds, the astronaut actually tweeted back.   

"@blakeshelton Living the dream!.9 days to go before we close the hatch and head back to earth,” Hopkins replied. 

Blake's response to getting a what might just be a once-in-a-lifetime tweet? 


Yep, that's it. I have a feeling Blake may have been left a wee bit speechless. That or maybe the two are old friends and getting a tweet from space isn't any big deal to Blake. Either way, it's still pretty damn cool to me. 

If you'd like to follow Mike (and I'd suggest you do since the pictures he tweets are absolutely amazing), his Twitter is @AstroIllini
