Book Signing with Astronaut Nicole Stott
American Space Museum presents…
On Saturday, November 20, join American Space Museum in person as they welcome Space Shuttle Astronaut Nicole Stott. She will be here signing her new book “Back to Earth: What Life in Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet – And Our Mission to Protect It”. Her book is available for purchase at the event.
Nicole has explored from the heights of outer space to the depths of our oceans. She painted the first watercolor in space, which is now on display at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. In awe of what she experienced from these very special vantage points, she has dedicated her life to sharing the beauty of space ~ and Earth ~ with others. She believes that sharing these orbital and inner space perspectives has the power to increase everyone’s appreciation of and obligation to care for our home planet and each other.
A veteran NASA Astronaut, her experience includes two spaceflights and 104 days living and working in space on both the International Space Station (ISS) and Space Shuttle.
As an artist, and now retired from NASA, Nicole combines her artwork and spaceflight experience to inspire creative thinking about solutions to our planetary challenges, to raise awareness of the surprising interplay between science and art, and to promote the amazing work being done every day in space to improve life right here on Earth. She is the founder of the Space for Art Foundation.
