The internet's favourite astronaut tells us why we're not ready for Mars

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield came to mainstream fame a couple of years ago with his YouTube videos from space and wide social media presence with some 1.4 million Twitter followers. Now retired, Hadfield is the best-selling author of “An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth.”

When he stopped by our office to promote his book, we asked Hadfield about colonizing Mars and what our next space endeavour should be.
