Prime Minister Stephen Harper Chats With Chris Hadfield

Expedition 35 Commander Chris Hadfield discusses life and research aboard the International Space Station with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and students gathered at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa.


Hadfield entered the history books by becoming the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station on March 13 during a Change of Command ceremony in which he took the reins of the laboratory from NASA’s Kevin Ford. Hadfield, NASA’s Tom Marshburn and cosmonaut Roman Romanenko are aboard the station until they come home in mid-May after five months in space.
