Astronaut Chris Hadfield invites Canadians to Participate in his World Tour

On June 6, 2012, Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Astronaut Chris Hadfield will travel coast to coast in only 3 hours – a close second to the mere 9 minutes it takes to cross Canada while aboard the International Space Station! During this brief National tour, he will virtually visit 10 major cities and personally invite Canadians to take part in his upcoming space mission by participating in a unique and fun Photo Challenge.
