National Geographic Live: Point of No Return

National Geographic >

In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on what they knew would be a harrowing journey to the summit of Burma’s Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. What they didn’t realize was that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be their dwindling rations, or the grueling jungle hikes, or the life-threatening hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavor. Leader Hilaree O’Neill recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richards’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s searing documentary, Down to Nothing.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony.

National Geographic Live: The Risky Science of Exploration

National Geographic >

It takes a special kind of person to plunge willingly into a subaquatic cave in Cuba, or risk his life reporting on cocaine trafficking in Jamaica, or chase venomous snakes across Vietnam. Fortunately, environmental anthropologist Kenny Broad is an extra special kind of person. National Geographic’s 2011 Explorer of the Year, Broad finds a surprising amount to laugh about as he shares stories of his triumphs, his tragedies, and his just plain weird experiences while watching science evolve to further our knowledge of the world.

National Geographic Live: The Mystery of Our Human Story

National Geographic >

It is no exaggeration to say that paleoanthropologist Lee Berger’s 2013 discovery of Homo naledi signaled a profound shift in our understanding of human evolution. In a secret chamber of the remote Rising Star cave system near Johannesburg, South Africa, a massive collection of bones was discovered by his explorers, assisted by recreational cavers. So he rapidly assembled a team of “underground astronauts” with caving experience, scientific backgrounds and the kind of physique that could fit in a chute averaging 7.9 inches in width. What they found suggested something unprecedented — ritual burial, a practice long thought to be unique to Homo sapiens. And that was just the beginning.

National Geographic Live: Mankind to Mars

National Geographic >

The year is 2032. Welcome aboard the first manned mission to Mars. Ahead of you lies about 45 million miles of empty space, followed by an 18-month assignment on a planet of globe-spanning dust storms, average temperatures of -55°C (-70°F) and a toxic atmosphere of carbon dioxide. This is the most thrilling adventure of your life, and National Geographic space expert Andrew Fazekas, The Night Sky Guy, is excited to take you there.

Produced in tandem with National Geographic Channel’s groundbreaking new miniseries, MARS, this lively conversation finds Fazekas making predictions about the epic voyage with leading Mars authorities. Meanwhile, stunning feature-film-quality visuals and expert interviews produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Michael Rosenberg explore how those predictions may play out. Our first footstep on Mars is as close as two decades away, and Mankind to Mars offers a glimpse into the minds of the brilliant scientists and engineers who are working to take our next giant leap.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony.
