Ireland's favourite astronaut is back in town...

… and he’s brought his guitar.

HE HAS A special place for Ireland in his heart, as we do for him. Chris Hadfield, the much loved astronaut, is back on Irish soil today.

Speaking to a packed out hall full of students today, the Canadian Commander of the International Space Station in 2013, answered questions from members of Trinity College’s Philosophical Society and the Law Society.

Before getting down to business, Hadfield managed to fit in a visit to the Book of Kells.

He also brought along his guitar. Perhaps we’ll get another rendition of Danny Boy while he’s over here.
