National Geographic Live Daytime Show

View From Above

Educators, don't miss this opportunity to bring your students to a special showing for school groups.

Step back, about 220 miles from Earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective.

Gain a deeper understanding of our planet’s beauty, climate and place in the universe from former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts, who took hours of video and hundreds of thousands of still images from the station’s 360-degree viewing module.

As a NASA astronaut, pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour and crew member on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, Virts spent 200 consecutive days in space – one of the longest continuous space missions of any NASA astronaut.

Terry Virts is a pilot and astronaut who has logged over 5,300 flight hours in more than 40 different aircraft including the F-16 “Viper” and the Space Shuttle. He has taken more photographs from space than any other astronaut and appeared in the 2016 IMAX film A Beautiful Planet.

After his presentation at McGlohon Theater, fly over to Discovery Place Science to go beyond earth and learn all about our solar system! How long is a day on Mars, what do you weigh in space and what's your space height? Explore the wonders of the universe by relaxing under the stars in the Star Lab inflatable planetarium and have a look through a telescope.

Daytime shows are available at a discounted rate for school groups only. For details and booking school shows, call 704.372.6261 x300.
