In this exhibit we celebrate the spirit of discovery and education personified by (Ret.) Col. Chris Hadfield, and exemplified by the many Nova Scotians featured in this display.
Canadian Astronaut (Ret.) Col. Chris Hadfield helped relaunch public interest in Space on a global scale in 2013. The "Space Race" is a name given to a mid-to-late 20th century competition between the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US) for supremacy in space exploration. Now 52 years after the first human travelled to Space the International Space Station combines the work of 15 allied countries --- including Canada. Hadfield's accomplishments are built upon generations of discoveries and contributions made by other Canadians to Space travel and exploration (some of which are listed in our chronological time-line). For the current generation earlier limitations of gender, nationality, or even age (read about the discovery by Kathryn Gray) no constrain earthly abilities to reach the cosmos and make significant contributions. In this exhibit we celebrate the spirit of discovery and education personified by (Ret.) Col. Chris Hadfield, and exemplified by those other individuals and organizations featured here.
