- 05/17/2013 01:49 PM EDT Sci/Tech
Chris Hadfield, the Canadian astronaut and former commander of the International Space Station has just returned to Earth, but he's just as famous here as he was in space. Hadfield was a viral hit, making endlessly entertaining and educational videos about life in space and sharing them with his earthling fans on YouTube, and racking up almost a million Twitter followers.
Now, as his first major post-space interview attests, his fame shows no sign of slowing down. Watch him talk about returning to earth above, or relive perhaps his greatest in-space video below, his performance of David Bowie's 1969 hit, "Space Oddity."
