Col. Chris Hadfield has had an interest in flying early in life and has a breadth of experience from mechanical engineering, to basic flight training, jets, underwater NASA simulations and finally to space flights. He then lived aboard the International Space Station (ISS) as Commander of Expedition 35. We’re excited to hear more from him!
In this podcast, Chris talks about the experience of what it’s like to live for 5 months on the ISS, his preparation and thoughts moving into the journey. We also talk about the first tweet from outer space, the future, and his take on extraterrestrial life. A surprising guest comes in later into the pod as well!
Great conversation with this legend guys! Enjoy.
