Last night, Commander Chris Hadfield spoke at the university near me. Over 5,000 people tried to get tickets (myself included). Only 1,000 lucky people were able to (myself NOT included). Much sad.
I think it’s amazing how one person can have such an impact on others. Through his photographing of our Earth, his musical endeavors, and now his book and accompanying talks; Commander Hadfield continues to inspire many to discover more. That is so wonderful. Sciences and environmental stewardship are so important. In our time we should be seeing more exploration and less war, but unfortunately the opposite is true.
I hope that this will change. Not necessarily for me, but for my children and descendants to come.
