Introducing the First Official GWG MCM RECIPIENT: Chris Hadfield
Commander Chris Hadfield is not only the first Canadian to command the International Space Station, he has also flown over 100 million kilometers while commanding humanity’s most distant outpost but the first ever certified GWG MCM recipient.
And your MCM does what again?!
We love Commander Hadfield not only for his out of this world skills (literally!) but also for how he has made space exploration and science cool for future generations to come.
With a stash that could make Tom Selleck jealous and an angelic voice that serenades us all the way from orbit back down to Earth via YouTube; Chris Hadfield has combined social media with space exploration to share with the human race how small and wonderful we all are in this tiny planet we call home.
Why we love him besides being the first Canadian to take command in space:
-He went temporarily blind in space and still finished doing the damn thing!
-He keeps it real when answering endless questions from earth such as what astronauts eat, barf and even what its like to cry in space. Not to mention he captures his explorations beautifully as published in his book "An Astornaut's Guide to Life On Earth"
-He gave the world the very first music video from space as per a request on Reddit. Not only did he perform an acoustic rendition of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” but also he managed to get Bowie’s stamp of approval while winning over a place in our hearts with every single note.
On this Man Crush Monday we would like to salute Mr.Hadfield for his achievements on this planet and beyond. What can we say, we just love a man in uniform.
