The world's first neurologist in space, Dr. Roberta Bondar is globally recognized for her pioneering contribution to space medicine research. Aboard the Discovery mission STS-42 in 1992 she conducted experiments in the shuttle's first international microgravity laboratory. A true renaissance woman, Dr. Bondar is also an acclaimed photographer of the environment. She is the author of four best-selling photo essay books featuring her stunning photography of the Earth.

Dr. Bondar will discuss how technology allows us a different insight into how our planet and its life are evolving over time, for we can appreciate things from a new perspective when we are at a distance from them in the time and space.

Her photographic works may be found in private, corporate and institutional collections in Canada, the U.S. and England. Having seen Earth from the unique perspective of space, her Earth centered pictorial images celebrate the beauty of our natural environment at an intimate level.

A question and answer period will follow her talk.
