Commander Hadfield is here to make you feel a whole lot better about 2015

“Our world is a better place than we often claim it to be.”

FEELING A BIT blue about the New Year? Need a bit of reassurance that things will get better? Everyone’s favourite astronaut Chris Hadfield is here to help.

In this short clip entitled An Astronaut’s Guide To Optimism (shot at Filmbase in Dublin’s Temple Bar, incidentally) Hadfield acknowledges the bad, but reflects on how far we’ve come in the past century.

“There are problems with everything, and nothing is yet perfect. But that shouldn’t be cause to bemoan – that should be cause to achieve.”

Wise words.
