Video short TED Talk "What I Learned Going Blind In Space" by Chris Hadfield

Watch: TED Talk "What I Learned Going Blind In Space"
The danger is entirely different than the fear. There's an astronaut saying: In space, "there is no problem so bad that you can't make it worse." So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider's web.

 “Good morning, Earth.”
 That is how Colonel Chris Hadfield, writing on Twitter, woke up the world every day while living aboard the International Space Station.

"He is a fighter pilot, a test pilot and an aeronautical engineer capable of docking a rocket ship. But that's not why the world loves him. Of the hundreds of astronauts who have gone into space, none has humanised it quite the way Hadfield has. " - Guardian (UK media)
