I got a chance to go to my sister’s school to be part of a skype with Commander Chris Hadfield, an astronaut on the International Space Station. It was a very inspirational call with Chris sharing what got him interested in space (the moon landing he saw at age 9 in 1969), the experiments he did on the Space Station and what day to day life was like in space.
He came across as a very nice man who took a lot of time to answer the questions that the girls had prepared for him. He knows a lot about Ireland because his daughter is studying at Trinity College. He mentioned that he loved seeing the green of Ireland as he came across the Atlantic on his 16 orbits of the planet every day.
