Meeting the amazing Chris Hadfield


I have, I guess, interviewed more famous people than Chris Hadfield, the former commander of the International Space Station, but I have rarely been so star struck. What is it about astronauts? They’re just a tiny bit better than the rest of us, right? (Although, as you’ll see from the interview, they’re kind of a pain to be married to). Hadfield is unusual not just for the wonder of his space experience, but for his ability to describe it in terms so vivid you get vertigo just from listening to him. It’s one of me favourite stories of the year so far. Read the interview here>>
