In his first-ever online class, retired astronaut Chris Hadfield teaches everything he knows about exploring space. Through personal stories, chalkboard sessions, and deconstruction of model spaceships, Chris shares the science of space travel and what the future holds for it.

Chris Hadfield spent a total of six months in orbit as the commander of the International Space Station (ISS). He has flown three space missions, conducted two spacewalks, and has logged nearly 4,000 hours in space. He is the first Canadian to live aboard the ISS and perform a spacewalk. Hadfield later became NASA’s chief of ISS operations in Houston and chief CAPCOM commander. He was recently featured among an elite group of eight astronauts in the acclaimed National Geographic documentary series One Strange Rock.

For space enthusiasts and anyone with a curiosity about our universe, Chris Hadfield’s MasterClass teaches students about life as an astronaut and how flying in space will forever change your perspective on Earth. Students will learn about the human implications of space travel and its effects on an astronaut’s body and mind, plus the technical and societal challenges we face in getting to Mars — from ideal flight path and the physics of landing safely, to the risk of human life, and what it will take to survive life on another planet.

Hadfield teaches his greatest lessons from his most indelible moments in space, changing how we think about our future there, and inspiring the next generation of astronauts in the process.

Orbital mechanics
Human survival in space
Spaceship design
