Amazing Space Oddity

on January 17, 2014

Did you know that Chris Hadfield’s son Evan Hadfield (27) who lives in Darmstadt, Germany has been helping his father communicate with Earth, via Twitter and other social media websites such as Facebook, tumblr and Soundcloud.
Chris Hadfield is not the first astronaut to live on the International Space Station, but he may be the first one you’ve heard about. How do you think his use of social media – websites like Twitter and Facebook – have affected his popularity and people’s understanding of space travel?

Has social media changed how you receive and understand information? Do you think it has changed how people learn – why or why not?
