Astronaut Chris Hadfield Reaches Out To Make Adam's NASA Dreams Come True

Last night's Late Late Toy Show was the tonic that the nation needed at the minute, with several children stealing the show.

One of those was prospective astronaut Adam, whose virtual hugs made us bawl and NASA dreams captivated us all.

Well, the powers that be were listening.

Due to a rare bone condition, Adam can't become an astronaut. However, he's decided that he wants to be a CAPCOM instead, a spacecraft communicator.

Several aerospace personalities reached out to Adam in the aftermath of the show in order to make his dreams a reality, including NASA astronaut Chris Hadfield.

Adam was also greeted by his hospital porter John Doyle on the show, which made the nation collectively bawl.

His 'virtual hugs' were exactly what the nation needed.

Adam King deserves the world.
