Frequently asked questions
92 minutes is the official store of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.
We get our name from the Commander’s second book, You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes. The book is a photo documentary captured by Commander Hadfield while aboard the International Space Station (ISS). It is a collection of the Commander’s favourite never-before-shared images helping us to see the big picture: why our planet looks the way it does and why we live where we do.
The phrase ‘Around the World in 92 Minutes’ was used in the title as during the Commander’s time on the ISS he would orbit the planet every 92 minutes.
As with many of the readers, the Hadfield team was taken away by the visual and descriptive beauty of the book – and 92 minutes was born.
Our mission is to share the amazing images and experiences commander Hadfield captured through our blogs, stunning products, and of course, his classic books.
A moustache can tell you a lot about a man. When properly administered, it can say, “this man has commanded spacecraft”, “this man escorted Soviet bombers out of Canadian airspace”, or “this man lived in a research vessel at the bottom of the ocean.” These can be tall orders to live up to – having a moustache is a big responsibility.
“The first Canadian to walk in space.”
Col. Chris Hadfield has spent a lifetime living up to that responsibility. On July 20, 1969, when he quietly began his mission towards becoming an astronaut, the gap between being a young boy on an Ontario corn farm and the first Canadian to walk in space was unbridgeable. Canada had no astronaut program, nor would it for the foreseeable future. Chris stuck to it. He spent his time at home learning mechanics on the tractors and old cars, flying with his father and brothers every chance he could. Enrolling in air cadets, he worked his way up through the RCAF, becoming an experimental test pilot and flying over 70 types of aircraft. He made certain that when the opportunity arose, he would be prepared for it. In 1995, Chris Hadfield rode his first rocket.
Col. Hadfield continued striving. He flew again in 2001, installing Canadarm2. He served as Chief of Robotics, CapCom, and NASA’s operation in Russia, eventually going on to pilot a Russian Soyuz. The first Canadian commander of the International Space Station, a New York Times bestselling author, YouTube sensation and truly engaging speaker, Chris has worked hard to earn the right to wear his moustache.
