They call space “the final frontier” — these astronauts have experienced it first-hand. It has been 50 years since Apollo 11 and we’re realizing we’ve only scratched the surface in space. Join the Vail Symposium as we present an out-of-this-world evening with astronauts Major General Roy Bridges Jr., space shuttle pilot, and Lieutenant General Susan Helms, former International Space Station resident and record-holder for the longest spacewalk of eight hours. These explorers will share stories from their time in space, giving the audience a taste of what the world looks like from outside of our atmosphere, as well as a glimpse of what the future of the space program might hold. Former NASA engineer Frank Buzzard moderates.
