r. to l. Astronaut & globally admired international Space Station singer & musician Chris Hadfield, having a stellar chat with Mobilium Global CEO, Ralph Simon.
Hadfield is the first Canadian to walk in space. An engineer & former Royal Canadian Air Force fighter pilot, Hadfield has flown two space shuttle missions & served as commander of the International Space Station (ISS). He was responsible for a crew of 5 astronauts & helped run dozens of scientific experiments dealing with the impact of low gravity on human biology. During the mission he also gained popularity by chronicling life aboard the space station, taking pictures of the earth & posting them through Twitter, Facebook, Google+ & Tumblr to a large following all around the world. He was a guest from space on television news & talk shows & gained massive popularity by playing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” on the ISS’s guitar in space. Fortunately David Bowie would have seen & heard Hatfield sing his song in the ‘tin can’ that is the ISS – a perfect location to sing & bring great meaning to the Thin White Duke’s unforgettable lyrics.
