What I learned from going blind in space | Chris Hadfield 5

There's an astronaut saying: In space, "there is no problem so bad that you can't make it worse." So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider's web. Watch for a special space-y performance.

He radiates steady coolness, he's like a space exploring James Bond. Could listen to him talk for hours.

So, let me get this straight...This guy is an astronaut, a great public speaker and he can also play guitar and sing... How many lifetimes does a normal person need to accomplish all of that?

Parents: "Chris, what do you want to be when you grow up?"

Chris: "Yes"

Chris Hadfield has successfully navigated the fine line of humility - writing and talking about yourself and your experiences so that they sound like a privilege rather than a peacock-type boast.

Chris Hadfield is so intelligent and absorbs things that he sees, hears and feels down to to such minute details that when he’s describing anything -ever, you as a listener can visualize everything he’s describing so vividly as if you’re there yourself!
At least, *That’s* how *I* feel whenever he talks. He is a brilliant story teller. He’s a brilliant human being. Period!
