What makes Chris Hadfield’s space videos so great is how mundane they are. He does the same kind of things you do right in your kitchen, as you can see in this fantastic “Hadfield at Home” parody.
It was a simple 31-second clip, uploaded to YouTube in early January — a watch flopping weightlessly around its owner’s wrist, the first such video from Commander Chris Hadfield aboard the International Space Station. No explanation, no context, just metal links and a watch face swishing around a hairy Canadian arm like a tangled length of seaweed. This, and the dozens like it that would follow, is how Chris Hadfield, who returns to Earth today, became the most important astronaut in decades.
After five months on the International Space Station, Commander Chris Hadfield and his team have arrived safely back on Earth. Check out the live stream of them coming out of the capsule right here.
Commander Chris Hadfield and the rest of the Expedition 35 team are headed home today. We’ve got a special place in our hearts for Hadfield and his silly and sublime dispatches from space, so we put together a supercut of all the best times to remember him by.
Chris Hadfield — CSA Astronaut, ISS Commander and the human explainer for all things space-related — answers another question with his latest video: how do astronauts exercise with that zero gravity and all? Turns out, they do a lot of the same stuff we do: running on a treadmill, deadlifts, squats and more.
NASA recently released a few photos of the Expedition 34 crew aboard the International Space Station. Sitting inconspicuously in the corner of one of the pictures was Gort, the Earth-murdering robot from the 1951 classic The Day the Earth Stood Still. So we decided to sift through the vast archives of space exploration looking for other toys we took with us to the heavens.
One does not simply build an International Space Station. It takes years of planning, and, for the astronauts charged with its assembly, months of training and Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA) practice in a simulated micro-gravity environment that also happens to be the world’s largest indoor body of water.
