    For someone who's been to space he's really Down to Earth

    I like how he explains everything without being judgemental.

    Chris seems like the perfect teacher. Imagine having him for your dad. Patient, calm, caring and most importantly...intelligent.

    Met him when he came to speak at my middle school, he answered all my dumb questions and was so kind. I didn’t appreciate meeting a man of his caliber at the time but I sure do now.

    These humans are experiencing something 99% of us will never experience… Also, great guy.

    Why wasn’t this guy my science teacher. I feel like a genius after listening to him.

  • Just Some Guy without a Mustache

    I don't know why, but his mustache makes me want to trust him with my life.

  • Bryce Stover

    Imagine living with the knowledge this guy has, knowing so much about the world we live in. It must be amazing.

    Fun Fact, ‘Cryosleep’ was actually tested successfully with mice in the 1950s but it was concluded that we wouldn’t be able to replicate fast enough with humans and it would damage our cells as described in the video. It is however how we discovered how to preserve things like blood and organs for transplants :)

    i wish all of my teachers in college were like him. he explains things so clearly and he keeps it exciting. i wouldn't mind having to sit for 2-3 hours in class listening to him.

    I know exactly that smell he was talking about, I worked on high vacuum systems

    Chris' description of the Clock reading

    I love how "comfortingly" he debunked myth number 1 :^D Great personality and delivery, I can see him very successfully hosting a TV program on Science and Space.

  • Philofthefuture

    I love how you say how fortunate you were to have a spacesuit. As if their are underprivileged astronauts that don't get them.😂😂 Love your interviews. Thanks always.

  • Driverjoe Longhauler

    I could listen to the snippet of facts all day. Very interesting and he explains things very well. Thanks. 🍺

    He answers these so nicely. Instead of saying "No, that's impossible, those movies are dumb," he shrugs and says "Well, we don't know how to do that yet!"

  • Hạnh-Minh Nguyễn

    He makes me feel smart because I understand his explanation. He has a way to explain thing s so simply!!! So smart and humble man.
