Join us for a reception, lecture and book signing with astronaut, explorer, physician, and inventor Scott Parazynski, as he talks about his new book, “The Sky Below: A True Story of Summits, Space, and Speed.”
A highly decorated veteran of five spaceflights, Scott is the only person to have both flown in space and summited Mt. Everest, is a submersible-pilot-in-training, and has traveled widely across Antarctica. “The Sky Below” is an intimate, propulsive memoir that offers a rare portrait of NASA from the inside, and an unparalleled opportunity to viscerally feel what it’s like to train for—and deploy to—a home in zero gravity, while also portraying a passionate astronaut’s engagement with challenges on Earth.
