Meeting Col. Chris Hadfield

Got to meet Col. Chris Hadfield at the Union Square Barnes and Noble book signing event for his new book "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth" on November 1st, 2013, my friend Mike Edwards came along as well. He was the astronaut that covered Space Oddity by David Bowe while aboard the International Space Station, a video that has been seen over 18 million times. He was also a prolific social media author (YouTube, Twitter, etc...) while in space and recorded random space station sounds. I mentioned to him that I used his recordings of turning a space suit on and off as sound effects in my EVA Spacewalk simulator for the Space Shuttle Atlantis Museum.
