They say a picture is worth a thousand words. And in this case, thankfully so, because these photographs may very well leave us speechless.
NASA astronaut, pilot and photographer Terry Virts will be presenting his views on perspective and life on this magical planet we call home. And he’s had the chance to look at Earth through a lens that few others have. Terry has spent more than 200 days in space, has been the Commander of the International Space Station, is one of four astronauts to pilot the NASA space shuttle, has flown on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, and has been on three spacewalks. Hey, all in a day’s work. He has also taken more photographs from space than any other person.
In this very special event by The School of Life Sydney, Terry Virts will examine what space can teach us about perspective and humility, making us acutely conscious of the largeness of time and the fragility of the planet. With a wealth of photographs and video footage Terry Virts will explore the beauty of our planet and our responsibilities as global citizens. And fair enough, because don’t we all love to share some good travel snaps after visiting a cool destination.
Join Terry as he shares his perspective and, well, puts things into perspective.
