Join IONS Board Chair Claudia Welss in a celebration of our founder Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s 90th birthday. In conversation with the filmmakers of the upcoming documentary, The Space Less Traveled, we’ll get a rare look into his incredible life story through the eyes of Antares Davis (Edgar’s goddaughter) and Cameron Jutte, and even hear from the man himself via clips from the feature-length film.
From personal stories about Edgar’s childhood in New Mexico to his revelation in space that led to the formation of IONS, we’ll explore what drove the Apollo 14 lunar module pilot, moonwalker, and American Hero of the space movement to inspire a movement in consciousness.
