See below for English description.

Faites la connaissance du colonel Chris Hadfield, le premier Canadien à effectuer une sortie dans l'espace… et le premier à enregistrer un vidéoclip en orbite!

Lorsque Chris Hadfield était un jeune garçon, vivant sur une ferme à Milton, en Ontario, le Canada n'avait pas de programme spatial. Cependant, le jour où il vit le premier homme marcher sur la Lune, le jeune Chris décide qu'il se rendra, lui aussi, dans l'espace. À partir de ce jour, tout ce qu'il entreprend, que ce soit apprendre à réparer la machinerie agricole, rejoindre les cadets de l'air pour piloter des avions de chasse et devenir un pilote d'essai, le prépare à atteindre cet objectif.

Chris Hadfield a été propulsé à trois reprises dans l'espace, il a également fait deux sorties dans l'espace, en plus d'être le premier Canadien à prendre les commandes de la Station spatiale internationale. Et lorsqu'il est question de jouer de la guitare dans l'espace ou de porter une moustache avec panache, il n'y en a pas deux comme lui!

 

Meet Colonel Chris Hadfield, the first canadian to walk in space!

When Chris Hadfield was a boy, growing up on a farm in Milton, Ontario, Canada didn't have a space program. But from the moment he saw a man first walk on the moon, young Chris decided he would somehow get to space. And with everything Chris did, from learning to fix farm machinery and joining the Air Cadets to flying fighter planes and becoming a test pilot, he prepared himself to get there. Chris Hadfield has rocketed into space three times, been on two space walks and was the first Canadian to command the International Space Station. And nobody plays a guitar in space or rocks a mustache better!
