Spirituality and Spaceflight with Mike O’Neal

O'Neal Poster (1)Many of our nation’s astronauts are viewed as men and women of great intellect and courage, but many are also men and women of great faith. This multi-media presentation looks at the role spirituality has played in human space flight. Stories will be shared on how astronauts have spiritually prepared themselves to go into space, how they practiced their faith while in space, and how space has profoundly impacted their spirituality. This talk features Apollo-era audio, a video of an astronaut’s worship on the International Space Station, along with many breath-taking pictures accompanied by encouraging and moving stories.
