21st Century’s most famous astronaut, Colonel Chris Hadfield returns to Edinburgh with his inspirational stories and vision.

An evening with Chris Hadfield will open your eyes to dream the impossible.  Together with rarely seen videos from Chris Hadfield’s personal collection, audiences will be mesmerised by the beauty of our planet.

This unique 90 minute presentation is ideal for adults and children alike.   
 
During his five month stay on the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield became something of an extra-planetary media star.   He not only shared extraordinary photos, he tweeted The Queen and William Shatner, talked to school children, strummed his guitar and provided videos about daily life. On his last day, he posted a farewell music video – his version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.  It instantly went viral, and has now been viewed over 26 million times.
