YOU ARE HERE: Around the World in 92 Minutes
is available at WHSmith in all terminals.
CHRIS HADFIELD is one of the world’s most seasoned and accomplished astronauts and the author of the #1 international bestseller, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth.
Divided by continent, YOU ARE HERE represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. This planetary photo tour – surprising, playful, thought-provoking and visually delightful – is punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity, too. In the spirit of his Sunday Times bestselling An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, YOU ARE HERE opens a singular window on our planet, using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement, the magnificence (and wit) of never-before-noticed landscapes, and the power of the natural forces shaping our world and the future of our species.
The top graduate of the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School in 1988 and U.S. Navy test pilot of the year in 1991, Hadfield was selected by the Canadian Space Agency to be an astronaut in 1992. Hadfield most recently served as Commander of the International Space Station where, while conducting a record-setting number of scientific experiments and overseeing an emergency spacewalk, he gained worldwide acclaim for his breathtaking photographs and educational videos about life in space. His music video, a zero-gravity version of David Bowie's “Space Oddity,” received over 10 million views in its first three days online. His TED talk, delivered in March 2014, drew more than one million views in its first three weeks.
