Astronaut Chris Hadfield!

He made a stop at my local Barnes & Noble for a brief Q & A and book signing. I was giddy like a little boy. I could listen to that man talk all day about his time in space. He actually focused on why I like him so much: why space programs matter to people on Earth. And he complemented me on my Voyager 1 shirt. It's been an hour since I left the book store, but I'm still geeking out.

Colonel Chris Hadfield will make two more stops in the US and will be setting off to Canada, then onto the UK and Ireland, if you want to catch him.
