Thought Leader Series: EVA 23

Date: July 14, 2018
Location(s): 
Category(s):
***Overflow seating is available***

Movie premiere and Q&A with EVA 23 astronauts Luca Parmitano, Chris Cassidy and former ISS Chief Engineer Chris Hansen.

Outer space is not completely empty, but it doesn’t contain much water, certainly not enough to drown an astronaut. Imagine the surprise and terror facing Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano when that fate almost befell him in 2013.

The story of his near-tragic spacewalk and the people who worked to keep him alive will be told July 14 7-8:30 p.m. at the next installment of our Thought Leader Series.

Space City Films’ documentary, EVA 23, recounts Parmitano’s spacewalk that was cut short when his helmet filled with water, nearly drowning him. The movie discusses why it happened, how he responded and what NASA has learned about working in low Earth orbit.

Stay after the screening of the 25-minute movie for a Q&A with Parmitano, fellow astronaut Chris Cassidy and former ISS Chief Engineer Chris Hansen. This free event has limited seating and tickets must be presented at the door for entry.
