I followed him while at the ISS on his Twitter, never imagining how big a Pop Sensation he was gonna be! I liked the fact he was a Canadian doing 'real' things and that the pics were fantastic! I hope he posts them all somewhere! Also it doesn't hurt that he's only a couple of years younger than I am so I can identify with what he's trying to achieve.
When the YouTube clip of 'Space Oddity' was posted I said to myself that it should be voted 'Video of the Year or decade or century'[if it isn't the internet doesn't deserve to stay up lol!] I made my kids watch it because it was history being made. Chris Hadfield and his team have done more for the Space Program's Popularity than anything in a long time!
I liken it to my kid's generation what Armstrong was to mine...we CAN do it!
