Colonel Chris Hadfield’s book, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything is going on my Christmas list. The guy has made being an astronaut cool again. Listen to him describe what it feels like in space and feel your stress slip away. Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. Some tidbits to whet your appetite: He was temporarily blinded while orbiting outside of the spacecraft and he had to hang on for dear life, he once broke into the Space Station with a Swiss army knife, and disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane. He claims the secret to his success is a philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst-and enjoy every moment of it. Cmdr. Hadfield shares his love of space exploration in this video. Many thanks to Joe Rogen for a great interview.
