Veteran Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has announced a two-book deal with Hachette imprint Little, Brown, the first part of which will be released October 29. An Astronaut’s Guide To Life on Earth will cover Hadfield’s three trips to space, including his most recent one as a commander of the International Space Station. A social media maven, Hadfield has already shared hundreds of clips from the 5-month gig on YouTube and Twitter—among them, his acclaimed zero-gravity take on Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
