Chris Hadfield Thrills Young Audience with his Amazing life Experiences

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield treated more than a thousand youngsters to a space trip at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium. He was the guest of Leadership and gave a special presentation to his audience.

Through the afternoon, Hadfield gripped the young and energetic audience with his insightful experiences and how he managed to make his dream to become an astronaut a reality.

Chris Hadfield did a wonderful show and told the students about his career and accomplishments which ultimately made him Canada's first and so far the only commander of the International Space Station. He was also the first Canadian to walk in space.

Hadfield shared stories of his life in all humour. He related instances of taking off to the International Space Station, the tiny capsule, re-adjusting to life back on Earth physically and the awe-inspiring technological accomplishments that mankind has achieved.

He also laid emphasis on the fact that you can accomplish what you wish for through a relentless and undying pursuit of goals.

Watching Neil Armstrong take a walk on the moon as a nine-year old, Hadfield had decided that he, too, will become an astronaut. He was determined against some odds and after the many accomplishments that came along the way, his story is a testimony of inspiration.

He also described the view of Earth from the orbit of the space station, how it felt to look down at a volcano and noting how thin the Earth's crust really is.

As his audience watched the images of the Earth taken from space, they all realized that we may be running out of time to set goals for our environment. Without such goals, the small space we live in will degrade as it is already happening and eventually it will be altered forever.

Hadfield released a memoir recently which is titled "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth".
