Join us for our second Nat Geo Live field trip and see our planet through the eyes of Terry Virts, who spent 200 consecutive days in space, taking hours of video and hundreds of thousands of still images from the International Space Station.
When: January 29
Where: Blumenthal Performing Arts Center & Discovery Place, Charlotte NC
Registration Deadline: December 15
Spots are limited. Members have priority for this event, but non-members will be added as space is available.
During this Nat Geo Live presentation, we’ll experience our planet from a new perspective and gain a deeper understanding of its beauty, climate and place in the universe from former International Space Station Commander, Terry Virts. As a NASA astronaut, pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour, and crew member on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, Virts participated in one of the longest continuous space missions of any NASA astronaut.
Following the presentation, we’ll go to Discovery Place to learn more about our solar system and explore the wonders of the universe.
This field trip is appropriate for students in kindergarten (5 years old) and up. No younger siblings can attend. At least one parent or designated adult must attend with their student(s). (This is not a drop-off event).
The timing of events will be provided later, but plan for 8:00 am until 1:00 pm or later.
