The 21st century’s most famous astronaut, Colonel Chris Hadfield, returns to Belfast on February 15th.
“An Evening With Chris Hadfield” is a unique 90 minute presentation by this Canadian pioneer reflecting on his 35 year history complete with rarely seen videos from space.
This event is in association with the 2018 NI Science Festival.
Since his retirement from active duty, Chris Hadfield has appeared worldwide onstage and television. In August and September he returns to the BBC to host “Astronauts: Do you Have What it Takes?” The six -part series takes 12 applicants through a process of challenges devised by Chris to test their suitability to become an astronaut. Do they have the right stuff?
Chris Hadfield undoubtedly does. During his five month stay on the International Space Station, he became something of an extra-planetary media star. He not only shared extraordinary photos, he tweeted the Queen and William Shatner, talked to school children, strummed his guitar and provided demonstration videos about daily life. On his last day on the ISS, he posted a farewell music video online – his version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” It instantly went viral, garnering millions of view quickly. It has now been viewed almost 37 million times.
An evening with Chris Hadfield will open your eyes to dream the impossible. This is highly educational and inspirational presentation that is suitable for all ages.
The event will kick off the start of the 2018 NI Science Festival, a packed programme of over 180 events celebrating the science of you, the Universe and everything in between. With events happening in over 50 venues across the country, the programme includes day time shows and workshops for children and young people, while the evenings will come alive with an inspiring programme to entertain the adults. The full Festival programme will be unveiled in January 2018. Visit www.nisciencefestival.com for more information.
