Nat Geo Live! View From Above feat. Terry Virts

When: Wed., March 28, 7-9 p.m. 2018

So few people get the rare chance to see our precious planet from the heights that astronauts on the International Space Station do. But thanks to the photographic work by many of these space-bound scientists, those of us grounded back at home can still catch glimpses of that spectacular view from above. At the next installment of the Nat Geo Live! presentation series, NASA astronaut and photographer Terry Virts discusses his efforts to install the Cupola Module, a 360-degree view camera at the ISS, and the subsequent photographs he captured with it. Many of Virts’ images were used in the IMAX film Beautiful Planet and are centerpieces of the book View From Above. In addition to showcasing his stunning photography, the former ISS commander talks about how his time hovering above Earth’s surface significantly changed his life and point of view.
