Col. Chris Hadfield: A man of the future on the importance of studying the past

It was the highlight of the day.

“Everything you do is based on the events that have gone before,” he said. “If you want to make an informed decision, and if you want to do things that make sense for the future, it is so much more helpful if you understand the past.”
