Great comment piece on the dunderheaded piece NOW Magazine wrote criticizing Chris Hadfield and space exploration in general.
Every now and then someone comes along and criticizes space exploration – and inevitably makes an ass of themselves in the process. Add Now Magazine to the list.
In a wildly dumb piece that ran this week, the Toronto alt-weekly trashed both Commander Chris Hadfield and space exploration in general as PR-seeking glory hounds and wastes of money, respectively.
Hadfield – the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station – of course returned to Earth on Monday evening, but not before posting a video of himself performing David Bowie’s Space Oddity… in space. That capped off a 146-day stint aboard the ISS that was punctuated by frequent tweets, photos and even an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit.
