“Nicole’s wonderful book maps her extraordinary journey from Earth to space and back again. She teaches us how to see our world as the spaceship it really is, and how important it is to take great care of the round blue vehicle in which we all ride.”
— Peter Gabriel, musician and humanitarian
When NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott first saw the Earth from space, she was filled with awe. Our shared home was a brilliant blue marble, with a razor thin atmosphere protecting billions of people, including everyone she loved. She realized that we are all bound together on this fragile planet. When she came back to earth, she knew she had to share this vision to help protect it.
In conversation with Kishore Hari on October 19 for an event in our 2021 climate series, Nicole shares awe-inspiring stories from both on the Earth’s surface and far, far above it. She mines the experiences of environmental scientists, advocates for clean water and climate action, and leaders from all walks of life, all while sharing her stories from spaceflight to create a roadmap to a better world.
Stott sees the real possibility of big, sweeping change on Earth that could help us combat the world’s problems, from the climate crisis to inequality. But to achieve change, she says, we can’t just be passive passengers. Every single one of us has to take up the responsibilities of a crewmember on a spaceflight as we turn our attention to protecting the imperiled planet.
At Kepler’s, we feel starry-eyed to host this accomplished and inspiring author online for readers this Tuesday, October 19! We recommend this conversation for all ages—so strap on your flight suit, and join us for an amazing evening with Astronaut Nicole Stott.
