Chris Hadfield (Family Fun Calgary)

When Chris Hadfield became the first Canadian to be the commander of the ISS, he made space more accessible for all of us through updates and videos. I read his biography, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, and was inspired by the life lessons and takeaways from which we could all benefit. His warm and dynamic personality – not to mention his many talents – have kept him in the public eye and right now, as we are all experiencing the isolation associated with COVID-19, Chris Hadfield has a bank of knowledge we can all draw on. The man was isolated, above the Earth, for 6 months with no more than 5 other people at any given time. If anyone knows how to thrive being trapped in a small space it’s Chris Hadfield.

Recently Chris Hadfield spoke to CBC and shared tips of self-isolation. He firmly believes we all now have an opportunity to be productive amid a wealth of technology.
