Amazing speaker! He covered a lot of his book in short amount of time. He was truly extraordinary. Additionally, I enjoyed having the panel questions from students. Wish he could speak more technically to the effects of a Year in Space but perhaps he is unable to.

Talk was very interesting, especially how mr. Burns’ films were influenced by his childhood. The sound system was ok, but could be improved.

Scott was very fluid and entertaining in his presentation. He spoke on his trials from birth to becoming an astronaut, and key or anomalous events that happened in between. He accepted online question from the audience after giving his talk.

Ken Burns is an eloquent and compelling thinker. Glad I got to witness the man behind the lens!

It was sold out and I didn't get tickets. You may want to do better tracking and only survey those who actually GOT tix.
