external Interview with Astronaut Chris Hadfield About His Photography —Photoshop Blog

You’ve seen his music video cover of Bowie’s “Space Oddity” that was actually performed in space. You’ve marveled at his zero gravity water demonstrations, in which he actually uses his own tears. If you’re Canadian, you may have even seen him on a Canadian $5 bill. And if you’re a fan-boy like me, then all of this has made you nerd-crush on Chris Hadfield … hard.

Hadfield returned to Earth in May 2013 after five months spent commanding the International Space Station. Since returning, he’s released his new book, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything. He was gracious enough to chat with me about all of these subjects, as well as another one near to my heart: photography.
