Upcoming sustainability discussion group with astronaut Edgar Mitchell

The sixth man to walk on the moon, Edgar Mitchell ScD, has had a different perspective of us and Planet Earth since his return from space in 1971. What he experienced as he looked out the porthole of the Apollo 14 space craft was a shock to his beliefs and what he’d learned at Harvard and MIT about astronomy.

His book, The Way of the Explorer: An Apollo Astronaut's Journey Through the Material and Mystical Worlds, tells it all.

Dr. Mitchell will spend Saturday, December 5th in Tampa Bay awakening the need to recognize that we are at the break point of sustaining human life on Earth and that we are among life's building blocks. He will ask, “How did we get here? Where are we going?”, as he presents the latest from frontier scientists’ research about where we are today and what needs to happen to co-create a green community – now. They all agree that climate change, peak oil and food shortages are looming causes of alarm and potential political clashes.
