Description

This book is more about the preparation for his mission to the ISS than a standard autobiography with many chapters about his life and upbringing, which I'm grateful for. In reality, a lot of that space is taken up by cargo and gear that’s been lashed down and secured for launch.

I was excited he talked about filming videos aboard the ISS and how he went viral, because I recognized several of the videos he’d talked about that I’ve already seen myself. If you haven’t watched their videos about how astronauts live in space—showering, eating, sleeping, etc. Like everyone else I ended up adoring the man, but he sure is a preacher, and the book is plump with sermons about being humble, being kind to one's fellow men, the goodness of practice, practice, practice, the importance of being a team player, and loving your family. The spine lengthens as the little sacs of fluid between the vertebrae expand, and bone mass decreases as the body sheds calcium. Hadfield has genuinely and refreshingly increased our understanding of how to thrive in both places.The environment is also highly competitive, without the competition ever being explicitly acknowledged. I photographed all the locations and interviewed the people I thought likely to be mentioned in the book, and even though the majority of them weren't mentioned, it felt good knowing that no matter the anecdote, I was prepared for it.

He explains so many intriguing approaches to every day life, things that make you reconsider the way you do your own job or interact with others. In his book An Astronaut ’ s Guide to Life on Earth , Chris Hadfield takes readers deep into his years of training and space exploration to show how to make the impossible possible. Hadfield served as Commander of the International Space Station where, while conducting a record-setting number of scientific experiments and overseeing an emergency spacewalk, he gained worldwide acclaim for his breathtaking photographs and educational videos about life in space. The Cupola, an observatory module built by the European Space Agency, had been installed on the Station. Chris Hadfield decided to become an astronaut after watching the Apollo moon landing with his family on Stag Island, Ontario, when he was nine years old, and it was impossible for Canadians to be astronauts.Sure it's cool and stuff that he's an astronaut but at the end of the day it's just a job and your paid to do it. I think it will be most applicable to the engineering/scientist type mindset, just like Chris himself. At first, they travel slowly, but after three minutes, the engines are fired and they start to pick up speed.
