He’s received accolades from the Canadian Prime Minister, dominated the Twitterverse and even covered Bowie. And Monday, after five months aboard the International Space Station, Canadian astronaut-cum-superstar Chris Hadfield returned to earth. As would be expected with the return of any celebrity, his safe landing in Kazakhstan was covered in real-time with pomp and circumstance. Here’s a round-up of some of that coverage.
Perhaps to highlight his famous ‘stache, the Toronto Star paired live streaming and live blogging to document Hadfield’s journey home.
And back in February, the Toronto Sun used a liveblog to run a contest where five lucky inquisitors could have their questions answered by Hadfield himself. My favourite is definitely “Would it be possible to have a baby in space?” Makes you think.
