An Evening with Commander Chris Hadfield is an Extraordinary, Eye-Opening and Riveting Experience That Could Change the Way You Think About Life


He’s logged nearly 4,000 hours in space, orbiting the Earth 2,600 times, intercepted Soviet bombers in Canadian airspace, lived on the ocean floor, been NASA’s Director of Operations in Russia, broken into a Space Station with a Swiss Army Knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft.

Chris Hadfield shares his incredible stories and the lessons he has learned along the way; there can be few better, more accomplished tutors.

Add music, including Bowie’s Space Oddity played weightless in the ISS that took the internet by storm, and you have an evening that will enlighten, entertain, inspire, motivate and set your imagination on fire!

Chris Hadfield harnessed the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions, infusing a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness not felt since humanity first walked on the moon.

Join Chris Hadfield for a unique, mind blowing evening.
