Commander Chris Hadfield leaped to worldwide fame by singing David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ weightless, whilst Commander of the International Space Station.
Chris spent decades training as an astronaut and logged nearly 4,000 hours in space, orbiting Earth 2,600 times. During his multi-faceted career, he has intercepted Soviet bombers in Canadian airspace, lived on the ocean floor, been NASA’s Director of Operations in Russia, broken into a Space Station with a Swiss Army Knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft.
As a metaphor for pursing our dreams, we’re often told to reach for the stars and Chris Hadfield literally did it. The commitment, intelligence, sacrifice and hard work that allow him to achieve his dreams have taught him some valuable lessons over his long career – and have left him with some incredibly riveting stories and advice to give.
Now he wishes to share his experiences. His passionate and inspiring talks will be held in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in August.
