Description

#GoodMorningEarth: Chris Hadfield brings together for the first time exclusive stories and photos from Maclean’s reporter Kate Lunau, who’s been on the story since getting exclusive access to watch Hadfield train to become the commander of the International Space Station. The book also features “The Twitter Diary: A giant tweet for mankind,” a selection of Hadfield’s tweets that gives readers a front-row seat on what his life is like inside the ISS, as well as dozens of his best landscape photos of Earth, curated from Facebook and Twitter. The astronaut shares his wry sense of humour during highlights from sessions on Reddit’s "Ask Me Anything" and Twitter, where he answered questions on everything from fear to recycled urine to whether he could hear Don Cherry from space. Join Hadfield in the Space Station and discover what his 700,000 Twitter followers already know: it’s quite a ride.

Blurb for updated version: In the updated #GoodMorningEarth: Chris Hadfield, Maclean’s Kate Lunau reports on Hadfield’s dramatic landing in a Kazakhstan field in “The wonder of Chris Hadfield,” and looks at how he inspired millions. As well, in a new selection of Hadfield’s tweets and photos, readers are taken to Houston and deep into NASA to watch Hadfield as he undergoes multiple medical tests and rehabilitation to help him adapt to life back on Earth. Read about Hadfield’s surprise retirement announcement in Lunau’s latest story, and discover when and how Hadfield came to that decision—and what it means for the future of space exploration.
