Orbit: This View of Earth
Astronaut and author Dr. Jay Apt takes you on an exciting tour of Earth as viewed through the photography of NASA astronauts from Earth orbit. Geography, natural change, and change to the planet caused by people are all part of this unique view of Earth. Using many of the stunning photographs from the book Orbit: NASA Astronauts Photograph the Earth, Jay Apt shares the experience of looking at Earth in a poetic and emotional way.
For a sample of photos used in this presentation, visit the Earth section of the Photo Gallery and watch Jay’s interview by Bryant Gumble on NBC’s Today show.
Far Beyond the Blue Sky
A stunning visual presentation of the most recent two decades of human space flight. From the dazzling Hubble photographs to radar images of Earth and Venus, from John Glenn’s return to space to the construction of the International Space Station, your audience will meet the crews and share the experience. If you want an up-to-the-minute report on the wonders being created in Earth orbit, this is the program for you!
Incredible Speeds, Incredible Heights,
and Beyond - Safely.
The rewards of spaceflight are many, and your audience will see the wonders of space and Earth, huge spacecraft outside our window, and life aboard the Shuttle and Mir. But the road to space has been a rugged and unforgiving one. Project Vanguard, the first spy satellites, Mariner 1, Gemini VII, Apollo, Shuttle, Titan, Mars probes and the Ariane 5 all have lessons to teach those who want to learn from failure to avoid repeating it. This program is geared toward any audience for whom the pursuit of excellence is a driving technical goal.
Launch Your Team into Orbit!
Jay Apt has led teams in universities, NASA’s space program, non-profit organizations, a large research museum, and start-up technology companies. He weaves these experiences together with the joys of succeeding in challenging tasks in an outstanding talk to motivate all the leaders in your organization to do their best and enjoy the ride!
For all programs, a room which can be made dark
