New TEDxKanata Speakers Selected!



Published on LinkedIn earlier in December,  a favourite video of many,  Explore: Without Limits by Canadian Space Agency Astronaut Jeremy Hansen was an interesting journey into a love of space, and how as a young boy, he turned his treehouse into a spaceship and appeared determined to make space exploration a lifelong destination.

“Our journey on earth is short. Yet we all have the power to be explorers, whether it’s
on earth or elsewhere. We can explore, without limits,” explains Hansen.

As a modern-day explorer, Jeremy has lived in underground caves and undergone geological training expeditions in the High Arctic. In 2014 he led the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations, known as NEEMO where he lived 20 metres below the sea surface for three days. He’s also been the guide for NASA crews in other underwater Extravehicular Activities.

 Listen in as Jeremy shares his journey as a modern-day explorer.
