Aaron Hoos’ weekly reading list: ‘Spaceman’ edition

Aaron Hoos: Weekly reading list

For years, my only interest in outer space was either another release from the Alien movie franchise or a rerun of Apollo 13 on TV. Space is interesting enough, and I’m sure the astronauts are busy doing whatever it is they do but I’ve got enough to think about down here on earth.

But my interest in space has been piqued recently by Chris Hadfield. This guy has, in my opinion, reinvigorated the space program and suddenly made space interesting and accessible at the same time. He returns to earth tomorrow and he leaves big shoes to fill at the space station.

Although my blog is usually related to business, finance, and real estate, I thought a collection of reading about Hadfield would be my little tribute to his influence:

Hadfield has shown himself to be not only a willing participant in science but also an excellent ambassador who introduced (or, in my case, reintroduced) the marvels of space to the rest of the world.
