Interact with Chris in a live webinar

Join a 30-minute Q&A session with Chris via a Google Hangout webinar where you can ask him questions about science, space, or what it's like to organize a secret Easter Egg hunt for your friends in zero gravity! Even when Chris is in space, he's a down to earth kind of guy. This auction will take place on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 8:30p.m. EDT. Bidders will get a chance to upvote questions in advance, and the authors of the most popular questions can ask Chris the questions themselves during the webinar.

This is your chance to ask the most famous moustached astronaut questions that are ordinary or... dare we say... out of this world.

Chris Hadfield is a pioneering Canadian astronaut who became a global celebrity through his Twitter feed while aboard the International Space Station in 2013.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield was born in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, on August 29, 1959. As a boy, Hadfield dreamed of becoming an astronaut. With his home country eager to jump-start a new astronaut program, Hadfield was chosen from 5,330 applicants to become one of four new Canadian astronauts in June 1992. Stationed at NASA's Johnson Space Agency in Houston, Texas, by the Canadian Space Agency, Hadfield quickly became an integral member of both countries' space programs.

Over the next two decades, Hadfield donned a number of different hats, from serving as the voice of mission control to astronauts in space, to working support for shuttle launches at Florida's Kennedy Space Center and serving as director of operations for NASA at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City, Russia. Beginning in 2006, Hadfield served for two years as chief of International Space Station Operations at the Johnson Space Center.

In addition to his work on the ground, Hadfield was part of several space missions, including an 11-day assignment at the International Space Station in 2001—his first trip to the station, where he became the first Canadian to leave a spacecraft and freely float in space. In December 2012, Hadfield embarked on the most challenging mission of his life: Along with two other astronauts, he departed on a Russian spacecraft for a five-month stay at the International Space Station. For Hadfield, the boyhood wonder he'd first experienced as a farm kid in Ontario had far from dissipated.

Videos

In the first video, Chris sing's David Bowie's Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Chris Hadfield on board the International Space Station.

In the second video, Chris demonstrates how he brushes his teeth while on the International Space Station.

Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield is a man of many firsts. He was the first Canadian to operate the Canadarm, walk in space, and command the International Space Station. Sometimes he's even known to strum a tune. Chris has worked hard to earn the right to wear his moustache.

You can read more about Chris on his website at www.chrishadfield.ca.
