Chris Hadfield is making us love space again.
He tweets, snaps stunning photos, and regularly connects with folks back home as he hurtles around the earth at 28,000 km an hour aboard the International Space Station.
Millions are following his every move. His YouTube videos go viral. The Queen and Captain Kirk send him messages.
CBC’s award-winning series The Nature of Things looks at Hadfield’s mission and our rekindled love for space with the first ever documentary produced while its star subject is in orbit.
