En 2013 fue comandante de la ISS, y se hizo muy famoso en todo el mundo por sus publicaciones en redes sociales desde la ISS, que culminaron en un vídeo en YouTube con su versión del Space Oddity de David Bowie, que fue súper popular. Hadfield se ha convertido en el astronauta más famoso tras Neil Armstrong. Estas son sus memorias.
