Astronaut Chris Hadfield's Snapshots from Space [Video]


Today, Chris Hadfield shared in social media a previously released video, Chris Hadfield's Snapshots from Space!

"Throughout his ISS mission, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield has been taking some of the most incredible photos of Earth ever seen. In this video, the Station Commander takes us to the best seat in the house to gaze at the visual splendour of the Earth. He shares his techniques and his passion for capturing the fleeting glimpses of our changing world that has galvanized a vast and diverse audience of space-lovers.

This video re-release ties in with his announcement that his new book, a compilation of photos of our world from the ISS cupola, will be available in October. It will be titled "You Are Here - Around the World in 92 Minutes". As a fan of his social media feed and of his book "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth" (recall he was a SciAm/Read Science! guest after its release, I wait excitedly for what is bound to be a fabulous book!

As ever, I will keep you up-to-date!
