Ottawa Citizen: What astronauts can teach us about aging

When Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield returned to Earth after nearly five months in space in 2013, he described his physical state as “tottering around like an old man.”

Hadfield, in his mid-50s at the time, was experiencing the accelerated aging that life in space brings on. It is so intense, that astronauts usually need help getting out of their spacecrafts when they return.
