Chris Hadfield

Could you imagine the pride of being the first from your country to walk in space? Chris Hadfield doesn't have to. When he first got interested in becoming an astronaut it was literally an impossible dream for a Canadian. But that didn't stop him from giving his best efforts to become one. He knew the best way to become an astronaut at that time was through the military, so he joined air cadets and got his pilots licence. Chris also loves to ski, so he became a ski instructor. He stopped even though it was a great job for him because spending a couple years on the slopes wasn't going to make him an astronaut. He then joined the air force and started training. He then went to the US to get a test pilot degree. After he finished his training, the CSA selected their first astronauts. A year or two after that he saw an ad in the paper that said "CSA astronauts wanted". He applied and after a long selection proscess in 1993 his dream finally came true.
