CMDR. CHRIS HADFIELD
ASTRONAUT & FORMER SPACE STATION COMMANDER
Canadian-born test pilot and astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield has inspired a generation to look up at the night sky and to appreciate the world as if looking back at it from afar. A hugely respected media personality, writer, scientist and polymath, Hadfield is a man of extraordinary achievements. Walking a line between the worlds of high-tech space adventure, and far more down-to-earth inspiration for children, Hadfield was the Commander of the International Space Station. He is also the only astronaut to have ever recorded a music video in space – namely a cover version of David Bowie’s 1970s hit ‘Starman’.
