I remember laying in the backyard with my mom and brother during a meteor shower when I was 4 years old.

Chris Hadfield has made quite the impression on us this week. As an astronaut he was able to do what so few ever get the chance to...leave earth. Now he could have kept this journey to himself like others have before, but this time he chose to include us on the journey. The day he was to return to earth I saw his video performance from space of David Bowie's "Space Oddity". David Bowie himself was honored by the performance after giving permission to Chris and his brother to record it and even tweeted the video with the text "Hello Spaceboy". One would think the video said it all, but Chris used social media throughout his 5 month stint in space and there is plenty to see and experience first hand thanks to Chris Hadfield. "May God's love be with You..."
