Think Like An Astronaut! Commander Chris Hadfield visits the University of Leicester

In this film, astronaut Chris Hadfield tells us what it is like to think like an astronaut, and why the University of Leicester is a great place to study Physics and Astronomy. Chris Hadfield visited the University of Leicester in December 2013 where he took part in a Q&A session with some of our students, watched a number of students present their research and interacted with them during a research exhibition.
