Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield gathered a remarkable following during his time in space, with his demonstration videos, song recordings, and photographs going viral throughout his five-month spaceflight. But ask him what he’s most proud of accomplishing during this mission, and he’ll happily tell you about the amazing science he and his crew accomplished, the last minute EVA they pulled off, and the opportunity to hand off command to his old friend Pavel Vinogradov. Okay, he had a pretty good time doing outreach too, although he attributes his success there to a fortuitous convergence of technological capabilities.
