Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield spent five months in space on his most recent trip to the International Space Station. He became famous after his social media videos and posts on social media went viral, including his rendition of David Bowie's Space Oddity (that now has over 24 million views). Forbes even declared Hadfield "perhaps the most social media savvy astronaut ever to leave Earth."
Hadfield recently published a photo book called "You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes,”with 192 photos that he took himself from the space station. He tried to intentionally take photos that displayed a human element to them and told a story that people would be interested in.
What I find really admirable is the book's proceeds are being donated to the Red Cross. Hadfield said, "My motivation was not to get rich making this book. It was much more that I wanted people to see the world the way we see it from the space station and hopefully feel some of the change of perspective.”
The following link shows a nice collection of Hadfield's photos and descriptions from the book . Enjoy!
