Chris Hadfield to speak at March Classic 2014
Grain Farmers of Ontario is proud to announce Chris Hadfield as the keynote speaker for the 2014 March Classic Conference. Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut and recent commander of the International Space Station, was born and raised on a grain farm in Sarnia, Ontario. He became interested in space at a young age after watching the Apollo moon landing on television.
Hadfield brought excitement to the Canadian space program and science through his interactions from the space station to Earth during his five-month expedition earlier this year. He used Skype to talk with students about what it takes to be an astronaut, made videos showing how everyday tasks can be performed without gravity, and shared photos from space with more than one million Twitter followers.
The 2014 March Classic will be held on Monday March 24 at the London Convention Centre. Planning is well underway for an “out of this world” conference!
