Astronaut Terry Virts

June 16, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$20 โ€“ $49

Astronaut Terry Virts gained newfound perspective on the International Space Station, where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station. When he later became the commander of the station, he made good use of the Cupola, taking more photographs than any astronaut who came before him. Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book “View From Above” and IMAX film “A Beautiful Planet,” but to hear him tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space. The Astronaut is sharing his story as part of the National Geographic Live series. The Smith Center offers special $99 packages for all three shows in the series, and discounted student pricing for ages 18 or younger is $12.50 for the show.
