On Wednesday October 16, the classes are invited to a meeting that is both special and spatial. Thanks to a collaboration between the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), astronaut Chris Hadfield takes off virtually to Canadian classrooms.

On December 19, 2012, it was aboard the spacecraft Soyuz as Chris Hadfield began his journey to the International Space Station (ISS), an orbital research laboratory whose first module was set up in 1998. The size of a football field, the station stands at 370 km above sea level and spins at 28,000 km / h. This allows him to circle the planet 16 times a day, which is the equivalent of a daily round trip between the Earth and the Moon.

In mid-March 2013, Chris Hadfield became the first Canadian commander of the ISS. With this experience and an exemplary career path, this denier will answer many questions from students both on his space adventure and on his professional profile. A native of southern Ontario, the man who grew up on a farm rose through the ranks as a military aviator, test pilot and then a key member of the Canadian Space Agency.

To attend this most enriching virtual interview with Commander Hadfield on October 16, interested classes must first register with the NFB and pay a fee of $. In addition, in order to get the most out of the event, a visit to the site Space School is ideal. In addition to providing information and links concerning the astronaut and the ISS, the site contains many educational resources related to pan-Canadian school programs.

This is an event not to be missed!

Note: Campus magazine subscribers can get a promotional code giving them 10 $ off the interview. Contact theNFB for more details.
