Event description
Chris Hadfield, the former commander of the International Space Station, will be in conversation with the Guardian’s Ian Sample.

About this event

Born in Canada, Hadfield was inspired by space travel when he watched the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Landing on television. Since his first journey into space in 1995, he has spent a total of 166 days in space. His social media chronicles of life in orbit - which famously included a zero-gravity cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity - made him a household name.

Since retiring he has written an autobiography, co-hosted a BBC series, and joined the Virgin Galactic Space Advisory board. Now, he has written a novel - a cold war thriller from the dark heart of the Space Race. The Apollo Murders is a thrilling journey to an alternative past. Russia and the United States are neck and neck in the race to discover a secret bounty hidden on the lunar surface, and as they sprint to the moon, political stakes on Earth stretch to breaking point...

Hadfield will talk to Guardian science correspondent Ian Sample about this gripping new novel, life in space and much more. Join them for the chance to ask your own questions in this livestreamed event.
