On Saturday November 15th, Cmdr. Chris Hadfield visited Eason in Galway to sign copies of his latest book ‘You Are Here – Around the World in 92 Minutes’. As this video posted by The Connacht Tribune shows, it was an extremely popular event, with hundreds of people braving the elements to meet Ireland’s favourite astronaut.
The ReelLIFE SCIENCE team were lucky enough to meet Cmdr. Hadfield beforehand, where he presented students from the winning primary school, Scoil Aonghusa Senior, with their €1000 prize. As one of our Special Guest Judges for 2015, he had been very impressed with the videos submitted by Irish primary and secondary students for the competition, saying “Discovery and creativity, turned loose by imagination. A great project that I am proud to be a part of.”
