National Geographic Live – Terry Virts: View from Above
Wednesday, Jan 23, 2019 at 7:30pm
Co-presented by the Performing Arts Center & Cal Poly Arts
Terry Virts always wanted to be an astronaut, so not it’s surprising to learn the former International Space Station commander’s favorite planet is Earth. It was when he was farthest away from his home that he most appreciated the beauty of our world, and he shares that perspective through stunning photos and videos he took through the station’s 360-degree viewing module. His speaking topics include risk and crisis management, the importance of strategy and vision, innovation, and intercultural leadership.
This program is presented in association with National Geographic Live, bringing the National Geographic experience to global audiences, while celebrating the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change our world.
