TERRY VIRTS: VIEW FROM ABOVE
March 11 & 12, 2018 - Victoria Theatre
TERRY VIRTS knew he wanted to be an astronaut as a kindergartener reading his first book about the Apollo missions. He has logged over 5,300 flight hours in more than 40 different aircraft, including the F-16 "Viper" and the Space Shuttle. On February 8, 2010 he made his first spaceflight as pilot of the Space Shuttle Endeavor on a mission to deliver the now famous Cupola, which provides astronauts with a 360-degree view of the International Space Station (ISS) and our planet. In March of 2015, Terry assumed command of the ISS and spent 200 days in space on the third longest continuous space mission of any NASA astronaut. From space, Terry also explored his other calling - photography. He has a unique perspective about the earth having taken more photos from space than any other astronaut.
