Chris Hadfield 2014

Join astronaut, author, and YouTube sensation Chris Hadfield for a virtual orbit of the Earth as experienced from aboard the International Space Station as documented in his latest book, You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes. This planetary photo tour - punctuated with fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity - opens a singular window on our planet using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement and the power of the natural forces shaping our world. Hadfield will tell the story behind the photos, sharing his in-depth knowledge of geology, geography, and meteorology explaining why our planet looks the way it does and why we live where we do.

Hadfield will sign copies of his book, You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes, after the lecture.
