For the last of the National Geographic Live series at Wharton Center for the 2022-23 season, NASA astronaut Terry Virts will be welcomed to Wharton Center's Cobb Great Hall on Sunday, April 30, at 4PM, to present his show View From Above. Tickets are on sale now through the official Wharton Center Ticket Office, online at, or by calling 517.432.2000 or 1.800.WHARTON.

Sometimes a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand-new way. Step back-about 220 miles from Earth-and experience our planet from a new perspective. Gain a deeper understanding of our planet's beauty, climate, and place in the universe from former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts, who took hours of video and hundreds of thousands of still images from the station's 360-degree viewing module that he installed. Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.

Welcoming guests of all ages, experience National Geographic like never before with immersive storytelling and unforgettable imagery.

National Geographic Live is the touring speaker series that brings to life the real and awe-inspiring stories of National Geographic Explorers and Speakers.
