Steve Scher talks to Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield about his time on the space station, his viral YouTube video and his new book, "An Astronaut’s Guide To Life On Earth: What Going To Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, And Being Prepared For Anything.”
Today, the Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield begins his return to Earth. But during the past six months he's spent at the international space station, he's become a big celebrity, even for an astronaut. That's because he posts his observations from space on twitter, along with photos of places on Earth as he passes overhead. Last night he tweeted a farewell message to his 800 thousand twitter followers. The tweet included a link to him singing a version of David Bowie's song, Space Oddity.
