    This guy is like the peak of humanity. Master's degree in aviation systems, fighter pilot for 25 years, became an engineer and astronaut, went on 2 space shuttle missions (including making videos on them), installed the Canadarm 2, and commanded the entire ISS for a short time. Like, you're done. You're basically overqualified for almost any other job on earth after that. He earned his retirement with flying colors.

      What do you mean how did he know about her? That is his job to know things like this. He is working in the same field as her so only makes since he would know over time.

      @abraham G but just like in sports you probably know who the best basketball player is don't you? of course your not going to know every player just like your not going to know every astronaut but Peggy whitson is literally the most experienced astronaut in the world. Its crazy how ive heard of this guy more than I have her.
      Edit: (the person I replied to deleted their comment but I think they were basically saying their not surprised and its not a big deal because your not going to know every single astronaut, or something along those lines)

      @Susan Stenson No need to be defensive, I just answered to the comment with my name in it. I never mentioned you needing any permission or told you to stop commenting, relax.
      As for him being Canadian, it is really irrelevant and that was the point of my original comment. You know, there are people on this planet that do not need collective but only their personal identity.

    • Susan Stenson
      Susan Stenson 2 개월 전 +1

      @Bojan Bojovic It's a public channel, most people have no clue that he's Canadian, it's not a crime to express respect for Canadian astronauts, and I actually don't need your permission to post here.
      Other than that, I don't disagree with your assessment of him. I just disagree with your apparent notion that you're the only person who gets to comment about him.

      @Carlie 88 pre-covid he would regularly do speaking tours and I've been lucky enough to attend several. Listening to him speak unedited is pretty similar to this interview, actually. I don't think vanity fair could have cut his stuff down and had it still make sense, because he tends to explain things or tell stories in a long, very well organized form where every part of the idea he's expressing requires the context of every other part for the whole idea make sense at the end. It doesn't lend itself well to editing down to sound bites. When he explains something, he uses a lot of words, but almost none of it is filler or unnecessary, so you can't really cut much out. I bet you could find recordings of some of his appearances if you look!

    Anybody saying he was "too critical" on Gravity... When the movie was made it was praised as being "Hyper Realistic and as Real as it Gets!" They also claimed NASA personnel were consulted before hand to ensure the most realistic experience.. it doesn't appear any of that happened outside of the imagery being spot on perfection!

      @Kendall Drury I guess it's like when they filmed that Dan Brown book Angels and Demons. There are some scenes at CERN and when I was there they told us, the movie poeple came and looked at the lab where the anti matter stuff happens and how it's done but then decided this looks boring and so they just showed completely different things that didn't make sense.

      They probably consulted Nasa staff, then ignored their notes. Just because they were consulted doesn't mean their advice was taken.

      I respect that he stated what he _did_ like about it as well. That's an important skill to have when critiquing something.
      Personally, I don't like 2001 because of how much it butchers the story into utter nonsense compared to the book. But I do at least have to agree that, in terms of an art piece, it does a very good job at that.

    I just LOVE how Chris Hadfield can be exasperated AF about a movie having a Damsel in Distress astronaut, or getting just about everything wrong ... but he *still* has the time to say "the acting is great" & "I'm glad they safely landed."

    what i think is SO cool about chris hadfield is that he is all these amazing things, he literally commanded some of the most IMPORTANT man made structures in the history of humanity but when i hear him talk or i watch videos of him, i don't see him as anything more significant than everyone else. i'm not sure how to put in into words but it's like as if i saw him on a subway, i might not even realize it's him and i don't mean that in a bad way. being able to do ALL those incredible things but still keep your humanity and kindness is the most crucial thing that SO many celebrities and alike forget. it makes me really really really respect him as a fellow human, not just another jumble of pixels we see everyday

    One of the coolest experiences of my life was in 2006 - I was luckily chosen to take part in the Scottish Space School as a teenager, we were flown out to Houston and spent 10 days hanging out with Nasa staff and touring Nasa facilities (as well as taking part in group challenges). We got a tour of the mission control centre (much more in depth than the paid tours - we weren't behind glass), we returned in evening to meet Gene Kranz and with him we watched Apollo 13 in the actual old Mission Control where it all happened.

    This guy’s reverence for the universe and its magic re-inspired me, reminded me of the awe it’s possible to feel when just looking up at the stars- I’m actually CRYING because I haven’t felt connected to that in such a long time.
    And I feel a lot better about my intelligence level because an actual astronaut was as bewildered as I was about the movie interstellar.

    For Interstellar at least, my biggest complaint was the lack of information
    How did nobody expect the time dilatation around a planet that is uniquely susceptible to time dilatation? How did nobody expect massive tidal waves caused by a gravitation pull that would naturally create tidal waves on the planet ?
    Why was the crew so blind to everything that they had to go through?
    All of the situations make sense. The only illogical part is the crew that is meant to deal with it.

      @myusernameissogoddamnlongthatiamonlyhalfwaythrough No, I wasn’t talking about the story concept. I meant the visual format and the sound editing as well as the background music marked a new age of cinema that would have taken at least another 12 years to get to that level.
      It makes no sense because Stanley Kubrick made 2001 at a time when certain technology and cinematography equipment wasn’t available or even existed yet.

    I think he actually pointed out one of the major flaws in the movie industry in general: People rarely write characters in a good realistic way and develop the story around them. More often than not, they just grab their basic story template, then write the characters to fit into that narrative, and boom, there you go, another iteration of the same exact movie in a different setting.
    also, would really love to have an astronaut review the movie operation ganymed. or better yet a survival expert since most of the movie actually takes place on earth. to me it seems fairly realistic, but i'd really like an expert opinion. would be pretty interesting. maybe you can include it in one of your future videos.

    (but since he also said "we were far enough South", I believe that would be Aurora Australis - not Borealis)

      @Guy H Most of 2001: A Space Odyssey is purposefully slow to be realistic, is a long movie, and is still considered one of the greatest movies of all time. And yes, the trippy/crazy part at the end goes beyond realistic, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the 4/5ths of the movie that comes before then, which is very slow and very realistic, especially for the time.

It´s an enormous pleasure and also an honor to watch and hear him on this video, specially on the last part where he shares his experience in the most poetic way. Thank you so much for sharing this!

    28:36 they could've made the scene more tense if they didn't have the weird sounds too. some of the most tense moments in cinematic history (for me at least) have been when the sound fades away/is gone, and maybe all the character can hear is their own breathing while things are happening around them. they really didn't need to add nonsense sounds into this scene to make it dramatic.
    i feel sorry for the sound design team, because they were probably like "this is ridiculous but ok we'll make some imaginary sounds i guess if that's what you want"

      ppl keep misunderstanding this, he doesnt mean 'take out the fiction' it just means that it would look much better if the basic sciences in films are realistic, just like in Interstellar it's physics are so realistic it even provided an accurate depiction of what a blackhole would look like (its because of the soon to be nobel prize winner physicist Kip Thorne's paper, he also consulted the film) but the fictional part are the inside of the blackhole which we know nothing about but it still works it still a great sci-fi film. the same with the passengers, Chris didnt say anything bad about the film just because it is a fictional ship, instead he focused on the physics of the water and what it would look like if it is in zero gravity and the film did it accurately.

      @Jason for supermassive black holes, such as the one in the movie, the math says that it is possible for an object to cross the event horizon with out being destroyed.

    • Jason
      Jason 개월 전 +2

      Eh, we know what gravity does, we even know molecules can be split down into atoms with sufficient force. It's more likely that Interstellar was wrong about the Black Hole part even based on what little we know. Even light can't escape the gravitational pull of a black hole. People lose digits and limbs when machines violently pull on them with an infinitesimal fraction of the force of a black hole, its not hard to imagine what would happen to someone that's inescapably close to a black hole.

    The time dilation thing is interesting. You get the competing effects of being further out of the Earth's gravity well, which make the clocks tick faster than on Earth, and velocity, which makes them tick more slowly. At the low orbit of the ISS, the latter dominates, and he correctly says he aged less, but by the time you get to the orbit of the GPS satellites, the gravitational effect dominates and clocks tick more quickly than on Earth. If they didn't correct for it, your GPS would be WAY off.
