I went to Brian and Robin’s Christmas Compendium of Reason on Thursday 12th December, and it was fantastic. Science, music, and comedy all rolled into one, with lots of fantastic guests.
However, the greatest guest surprise was none other than Commander Chris Hadfield! As seen in the video above, the whole theatre erupted in cheers and applause when he came onto the stage, singing Space Oddity. It was so epic seeing him in real life, and he really is as awesome as his many videos make him out to be. Smart, funny, exceptionally talented, humble, interesting, nice, and just plain amazing.
Plus, he’s an astronaut, and nothing is cooler than that. Epic. Onwards!
