Chris Hadfield Not Done Exploring

I doubt anyone expected Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield to have a traditional retirement.  But his latest project makes that clear.  Hadfield is currently on an Arctic icebreaker expedition traveling Baffin Bay between Greenland and Canada.  Besides the paying passengers, joining Hadfield on the expedition is the cast of another edition of Hadfield’s Generator touring show.  (Those who miss the Arctic stops can see the program later this year in Canada).

Hadfield intends to have some aspects of this trip – through the Generator cast – presented to a broader audience than those on board the icebreaker.  Exactly what form this takes won’t be clear until after the expedition, but nearly all of the Generator artists joining Hadfield have significant video experience, so I’d expect the output to be heavy on the visuals.  Regardless, I’m looking forward to it.
