Chris Hadfield: What I learned from going blind in space

Published on Mar 19, 2014

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. Watch for a special space-y performance. ... space.html

I honestly thought he was never going to recover from his extremely long duration on the ISS. When I heard about it, I was singing that David Bowie song constantly for days. All the while, I was praying that this man would not suffer to greatly. Maybe it worked.

When I was a toddler my brothers used to tell me there was a ghost that lived under the stairs and I believed them. One day I got sick of being scared, and I sat there, waiting for darkness. Eventually I fell asleep and I woke up relieved to know that I conquered my fear of darkness or ghosts or whatever. I've used this method all throughout my life to confront my fears.

Words of wisdom friend. When I heard about his re-entry I couldn't stop singing that song for days. I'm glad to know he likes to jam too.
