The main event for the evening was Commander Virts discussing his new book, “View from Above: An Astronaut Photographs the World,” and highlighting some of his favorite photos and memories from his time on the International Space Station and Space Shuttle Endeavor. The talk ended with Q&A and a book signing to follow. Our students were fortunate to be only one of two school groups at an out of this world experience.
