book cover of Canadian in SpaceAs Chris Hadfield, first Canadian to command the International Space Station (ISS) , has landed safely back on Earth; many young people got inspired by his mission. He Tweeted photos, talked to schoolchildren, strummed his guitar and provided videos about daily life on the station. He captured the hearts and attention of people all over the world, with an impressive list of achievements described as nothing short of inspirational. Chris Hadfield has motivated lots of children and youth by reaching out to them, in a way that appeals to them. There is no better legacy than planting the seed of interest in astronomy in those who one day aspire to be astronauts.
