Speaking with: Chris Hadfield.

Colonel Chris Hadfield is one of the most famous astronauts on Earth. Through the creative use of social media, he’s made space exciting and accessible to new generations of enthusiasts, most notably through his performance of David Bowie’s Space Oddity while on board the International Space Station.

In this interview, I ask Chris about human-machine relations, lessons for the Australian space program and his favourite bit of space junk.


Chris Hadfield is a guest at the Melbourne Writers Festival. Details here.
