Chris Hadfield, the retired Commander of the International Space Station, is interviewed by Joe Rogan, who questions everything, in this video podcast. They talk about all kinds of things – space, science, technology, environment, social matters, etc. It’s an hour long, but it’s worth every minute of it.
It’s fascinating in a variety of ways. I particularly enjoyed the bits about stars and light pollution, humans living on a tiny crust, and his feelings during the flight up and coming back down. As a side note, I couldn’t not notice how clean his language is and how well he expresses himself, and how educated he is in a variety of areas. Joe Rogan is by far not an idiot, and yet, the contrast is still there.
Like a stretch of West Virginia we went through, where every other building is a church or a strip club.
And Iâ€™m BARELY exaggerating here. Iâ€™m talking 4 or 5 strip clubs and 3 or 4 churches in a 2-mile area, and not much else. I guess the theme there is just keep â€˜em on their knees, no matter how you go about it.
There were 20 people, 10 of them were wearing camouflage, 6 of them had NASCAR t-shirts on, and none of them had a full set of teeth.
