A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE LECTURE BY TERRY VIRTS (UNITED STATES)

GRADES 5-8

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Step back, about 220 miles from earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective. Former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts helped to install the outpost’s 360-degree observation module, which not only helped him to take more photos than any astronaut before him, but also gives those who see the images a deeper understanding of our planet’s climate, economics, and place in the universe.
