Sometimes a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand new way. For astronaut Terry Virts, his newfound perspective was from the International Space Station (ISS), where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station. When he later became the commander of the ISS, 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 the IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.

Join us at Discovery Place Science before the presentation to go beyond earth and learn all about our solar system. Terry Virts will be on-site to meet guests as they interact with out-of-this-world activities. Relax under the night sky in the Star Lab planetarium, take a look through a telescope, and put your space packing skills to the test. Admission to pre-show activities is included with each National Geographic Live! ticket purchase.
