Commander Chris Hadfield

Commander Chris Hadfield was the Commander of the International Space Station for expedition 35. He was the first Canadian to Command an ISS expedition, and spent nearly six months aboard the ISS. While traveling in low-earth orbit, he achieved a remarkable level of international popularity through social media. Commander Hadfield was tweeting, and streaming, and sharing as much as he could of his experience with the world below. His “Space Oddity” video has been viewed more than 100,000,000 times since its posting back in May on various social media feeds.

Learn how Commander Hadfield took "The Dot" into space! 

Commander Hadfield has a book coming out in October.


  1. Chris! An honor to have your space dot in the gallery, my friend!

  2. Wow, I had heard your story, Peter, about how Commander Hadfield brought THE DOT into outer space, but had no idea about this video. I'm impressed in SO many ways! :D
