Former Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield issues prime directive: improve quality of life for all | CTV News
Having a broader perspective of the planet than most of the rest of the Earth's population, the Ontario native told the room he has boiled down a "prime directive" allowing him to determine his daily actions.
"For me it is, how do we improve the standard of living for as many people as possible and make it sustainable?"

He went on to implore the attendees he described as well-educated to set politics aside, urging them to build better forms of energy production, improved communications systems and develop a sense of global vision.

"The business that you folks are in here, the transition from what we do regularly, to what we imagine, to what we can do in the future, absolutely shapes who we are as a nation."

But the most important goal outside of Earth is bringing down the cost of space travel so more people can take advantage of it, he said.
He lauded billionaire space investors Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson for their on-going, brave attempts, saying he believes the cost of launch will eventually be dropped dramatically and that will play a role in equalizing the world's population.

For example, it will mean cheap, disposable satellites could be launched into space to create a sky-borne world wide web of connectivity that's accessible by everyone, he said.

"We need to give every single person on earth the ability to push themselves to their own personal limits, to take advantage of this human capital that exists amongst our species."
