Share your place on Earth with astronaut Chris Hadfield

The world is pretty big, and at times can seem daunting! Gain a new perspective by exploring your role on our home planet and the places which we inhabit.

Chris Hadfield is a veteran NASA astronaut, engineer, musician, and pilot. He has flown two Space Shuttle missions and served as commander of the International Space Station. Chris has written about his time in space, exploring Frank White's idea of the 'Overview Effect', in which astronauts experience a shift of awareness after viewing Earth from outer space.

If you could look back at your place on Earth from space, how do you think you would feel?
