Chris Hadfield with Anika

Col. Chris Hadfield, former Canadian astronaut and commander of the International Space Station, visited TRIUMF early this rainy Vancouver morning. As part of his first trip to our laboratory, Col. Hadfield kindly indulged us in answering a few questions before meeting with laboratory staff and taking a tour of our facilities.

The interview questions below were inspired by members of the TRIUMF staff who were all invited to send questions to the Communications Team. Most questions were centered around Col. Hadfield's experience on the International Space Station, his general philosophy of space exploration, and social media.

Full audio clips are listed under each question, along with an excerpt of Col. Hadfield's response on the TRIUMF web site
