'Sensational' Canada astronaut to retire

    The Canadian astronaut who became an out-of-this-world internet sensation, is retiring.

    Chris Hadfield returned to earth last month after a five month stint on board the International Space Station.

    While his work was, no doubt, important - most know him for his music video in space.

    He has also grabbed the attention of young people across Canada, making them interested in science and space exploration.
