And after playing and shooting a music video of David Bowie's song "Space Oddity" from the International Space Station, he might be the most famous astronaut of our era. But Hadfield's story is also about farm life in Canada and about the behind the scenes journey to travel outside our atmosphere. It's all in his new book, "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth."
