Astronaut | First Canadian Commander of the International Space Station Referred to as “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,” Colonel Chris Hadfield became a household name as the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station. A heavily decorated astronaut, engineer and pilot, Hadfield was invested into the Order of Canada, and his many awards include the Meritorious Service Cross and the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. Hadfield is also a bestselling author of three books, a celebrated musician, and a central figure in two internationally acclaimed television series: he is co-creator and host of BBC’s “Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?” and a key contributor to National Geographic’s “One Strange Rock.”
