An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth
Pan Books, 2015 - Astronauts - 310 pages
Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. During this time he has broken into a space station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft, and become a YouTube sensation with his performance of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' in space. In this book, he takes readers deep into his years of training and space exploration to show how to make the impossible possible.
