1. When we learnt that astronauts look a bit like zombies when they sleep in space.
9. When William Shatner called the ISS and had a chat with Hadfield.
And asked him about the future of the US space programme! And becoming one with the universe! And dealing with the fear of going to space!
Hadfield’s reply to that last one: “You can’t live a worthwhile life without taking risks.”
15. When the LADEE spacecraft launched and looked spectacular.
The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) blasted off from Nasa’s Wallops flight facility in Virginia. This is a long exposure that shows the rocket passing over the Assateague Light House.
20. And we heard the sound of interstellar space for the very first time.
24. And of course when Chris Hadfield covered “Space Oddity” from space and it was the best thing ever.
