National Geographic Live: View From Above with astronaut Terry Virts
April 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $32
Step back, about 220 miles from Earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective. Gain a deeper understanding of our planet’s beauty, climate, and place in the universe from former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts, who took hours of video and hundreds of thousands of still images from the station’s 360-degree viewing module. As a NASA astronaut, pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour, and crew member on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, Virts spent 200 consecutive days in space—one of the longest continuous space missions of any NASA astronaut. Virts appears in the 2016 IMAX film A Beautiful Planet and is the author of View from Above: An Astronaut Photographs the World.
Pilot and astronaut Terry Virts has logged over 5,300 flight hours in more than 40 different aircraft including the F-16 “Viper” and the Space Shuttle. He has taken more photographs from space than any other astronaut.
