Podcast: Astronaut Chris Hadfield

This week we have a very special guest on the podcast: astronaut Chris Hadfield. Hadfield is the first Canadian astronaut to space walk, and the first Canadian astronaut to command a spaceship (the ISS). He has flown on two US space shuttle missions and once on the Russian Soyez rocket. He's the author of An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything, and last spring he sang and played guitar to the David Bowie song Space Oddity.

Listen to the podcast to hear how Hadfield approaches risky situations, what he misses most about space, and more. Plus, check out the bonus clips from the interview, posted below the fold.

You can see more videos at Hadfield's Youtube video and his Twitter account.

What's it like going into space? Hadfield talks about the experience of being an astronaut.
