Scott Kelly to Talk Infinite Wonder at AMNH November 5!
Hopefully these tickets won’t be sold out by the time I get home! So excited for this Frontiers Lecture:
Astronaut and best-selling author Scott Kelly returns to the Museum for a special showcase of his latest book, Infinite Wonder. This collection of photographs of Earth, taken from Commander Kelly’s unique perspective 250 miles above the planet’s surface, provides both an artistic appreciation of our planet and a passionate argument for conservation. Kelly will be joined by John Logsdon, author of The Penguin Book of Outer Space Exploration, on stage.
