Wish You Were Here: Donald Pettit: An Astronaut’s Guide to Photography in Space
On Thursday January 9, 2014 at 6:00 pm in Dryden Theatre
NASA Astronaut Donald Pettit, PhD, a three-time space explorer, was the ﬁrst astronaut in the history of space exploration to successfully enter a commercially built and operated spacecraft docked in the International Space Station (ISS) while in orbit. During his time in space—logging more than 370 days orbiting Earth and over thirteen EVA (spacewalking) hours—Pettit amassed an extraordinary portfolio of long-exposure outer space photos he calls “star trails.”
Join us for this very special Wish You Were Here presentation. The museum will be open until 8 p.m. for attendees to view The History of Space Photography and Astro-Visions before or after the lecture.
