About the 2017-2018 series:
Terry Virts will take you into space to give you a new perspective on our home, the Earth, while Albert Lin takes you back in time to explore the forbidden tomb of Ghengis Khan, and then it's into the wilds of forests and hidden streams with Anand Varma to see some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and fascinating wildlife through the lens of a well-aimed camera.

Each lecture will take place in our intimate theater and you will have a chance to find out exactly what you’d like to know about the work of these amazing explorers through an open Q&A after each talk. You can find more details about each speaker on the menu to the right. Seating for the series is limited, so reserve yours before they’re sold out!
