We have been privileged to follow the incoming footage from Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's recent trip to the Arctic with a group of fellow adventurers, and it has been a great starting point for our conversations as a class about Northern Canada. As we're starting of the year looking at the diversity of geography and climate in our vast Canadian landscape, it's been very neat to get an up close look at the experiences of Chris Hadfield and his fellow icebreaker passengers. You can take a peek at some of the stories below, and see more on Chris Hadfield's Twitter account and the Generator Arctic website.
