This expedition has officially made Chris Hadfield the second Canadian astronaut to command a spaceship. During his time in space he tweeted many pictures and videos for us on earth to see what it's like in space. When he landed( last month) he said they hit earth just like a car crash. He also said that his body was not used to the gravity and it will take time for him to get used to it. When he landed he started to get dizzy and he says that his body has forgotten how to send blood up to his brain so he has to wear a special G-suit that squeezes blood into his brain.
