OSC Great Conversations: In Conversation with Scott Kelly (SOLD OUT)

Scott Kelly
Thursday, October 26, 2017 -
7:30pm to 9:00pm

We’ve created a research lab in space. But can man really live beyond Earth’s orbit? Astronauts provide a unique perspective on both the challenges of living in a microgravity environment and the opportunities of human space missions. What are the extreme challenges of a long-term spaceflight on the body and psyche? Is there such a thing as a space gene? Does  Mars hold the key to life in space?

Interviewed by former CSA astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, three-time commander of the International Space Station Scott Kelly will discuss his colourful formative years, record-breaking space career and the infinite wonder of the galaxy. Join us as the two sit down for a cosmic conversation, astronaut to astronaut.

Scott Kelly’s memoir, Endurance: A Year in Space, a Lifetime of Discovery, will be available for purchase and signing.
