- 6:30 PM
As a part of the festival, the historic 1932 Criterion Theatre will host a talk with Astronaut Dan Berry on Friday, September 11, from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. As a child growing up, Dr. Barry was told that his dream of space flight was unattainable. Now, a successful astronaut with three space flights, four spacewalks and two trips to the International Space Station behind him, as well as a successful robotics company he founded, Dr. Barry brings his life lessons to bear in this inspirational speech. In addition to his own experiences with perseverance, Dr. Barry also will speak about the experience of being in space itself, including a “chest shaking video presentation” which brings the viewer into the cockpit with him.
