ATC Video Now Online: Adam Savage

We're so pleased to be able to share this incredible Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium lecture from Adam Savage, "Places in Space"!

Adam Savage has spent his life gathering skills that allow him to take what's in his brain and make it real. He's built everything from ancient Buddhas and futuristic weapons to fine-art sculptures and dancing vegetables. In 2002, Adam was chosen along with Jamie Hyneman to host MythBusters, which premiered on Discovery Channel in January 2003. Fourteen years, 1,015 myths, 2,950 experiments, eight Emmy nominations and 83 miles of duct tape later, the series ended in March 2016.

In "Places and Space," Adam discusses the future of technology and habitation in space — on Mars, the moon, and even Earth — with Nicholas de Monchaux, author of Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo. Sharing examples from his unique collection of reproduction spacesuits from NASA and film history, Adam explores the history and design of human space travel.
