Space Flight: An Astronaut's Perspective
From the 2003 Friends of the Library Lecture brochure:
"A colonel in the Canadian Armed Forces and a top air force pilot, Chris Hadfield served as Mission Specialist #1 on STS-74, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) second space shuttle mission to rendezvous and dock with the Russian Space Station Mir in November 1995.
In April 2001, Chris served as mission specialist #1 on STS-100, International Space Station assembly Flight 6A. The crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour delivered and installed Canadarm2, the new Canadian-built robotic arm.
Born in Sarnia, Hadfield received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering (with honours) in 1982 at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario. That same year, he conducted post-graduate research at the University of Waterloo. He received a master of science degree in aviation systems from University of Tennessee in 1992. He was selected as one of four Canadian astronauts from a field of 5,330 in June 1992. Two months later, he was assigned by the Canadian Space Agency to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
His work at NASA has included technical and safety issues for Shuttle Operations Development and launch support at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. As well, Hadfield was NASA’s Chief CAPCOM, the voice of mission control to astronauts in orbit, for 25 space shuttle missions.
In the last two years, Hadfield was in Star City, Russia, as NASA’s Director of Operations at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre. In serving as NASA’s lead representative, his work included coordination and direction of all Space Station Crew activities in Russia and oversight of training and crew support staff.
Since then, Hadfield has trained and qualified as a cosmonaut to fly in the Soyuz as a flight engineer, as well as to do spacewalks wearing the Russian Orlan suit
