Astronaut Chris Hadfield at Town Hall, Seattle
When:Tuesday, November 12, 2013 -
Presented by Town Hall in partnership with the Museum of Flight and University Book Store as part of The Seattle Science Lectures:
Chris Hadfield decided to become an astronaut after watching the Apollo moon landing with his family when he was 9 years old—and in 2013, he served as commander of the International Space Station, orbiting the Earth during a five-month mission (you might remember his video of David Bowie’s Space Oddity, viewed nearly 17 million times). Fulfilling his lifelong dream required intense focus, natural ability, and a singular commitment to “thinking like an astronaut” (instead of visualizing victory, astronauts prepare for the worst … and always sweat the small stuff). Now Hadfield, author of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, shares a rare insider’s perspective of just what that kind of thinking involves, and how earthbound humans can use it to achieve success and happiness in their own lives.
