About Chris Hadfield

Astronaut Chris Hadfield gained online popularity in late 2012 while chronicling life aboard the International Space Station on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Chris has been named the “most social media savvy astronaut ever to leave Earth" by Forbes, and ended his mission in 2013 with a viral music video performing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity." In 2014, he released a photography book, You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes, and in 2015, he released Songs From a Tin Can, an album recorded entirely on the ISS—the first record from space.
