Scientists, photographers, filmmakers, and explorers featured in National Geographic have helped shape what we know about the world — and how we see it. During Mesa Art Center’s five-show National Geographic Live! series, you can hear about these explorers’ adventures.

The series opens on Wednesday, October 18, with a behind-the-scenes talk by Terry Virts, an astronaut who, while stationed on the International Space Station, installed and worked on the Cupola module, a dome-shaped tower that allowed him to capture panoramic photographs of Earth. His work is featured in the book View From Above: An Astronaut Photographs the World and the documentary A Beautiful Planet.
