Fresh off his stint as commander of the International Space Station, Chris Hadfield has announced he’ll be retiring from the Canadian space program.

He says he’s ready to pursue private interests, outside government.

Hadfield is still recovering from his five-month stay aboard the orbiting space station, during which he became its first Canadian commander.

He calls it the pinnacle of his career.

Hadfield says he’s still feeling the effects of his extended stay in zero gravity but figures he’ll be feeling more like himself – by Labour Day.
