Dr. Kirby Runyon Speaking Topics

  • You Should Take Better Vacations and Outer Space is the Answer

    Tropical turquoise water, sublimely detailed medieval cathedrals, and mountain views…they’re great, but what if there were more exciting ways to vacation? What if you really could take a vacation to outer space without leaving Earth? Would you actually feel that sense of transcendent awe — that cognitive shift in awareness — that astronauts report? Dr. Kirby believes the answer is YES!

    He'll show you how to take your next vacation in outer space...without leaving Earth. From the most Moon• and Mars-like landscapes in the American Southwest to floating in space-like weightlessness onboard a Zero Gravity airplane. Best of all, he'll show how you can stay inspired through space exploration in your everyday life.

  • Landscapes Beyond: The Cutting Edge of Spacecraft Exploration of the Planets, Moons, and Asteroids around the Solar System.

    What is the most awe-inspiring natural location you’ve ever been to? Maybe the Grand Canyon or the beaches of Bora Bora? What emotions would you feel if you could see—up close—the landscapes on the worlds beyond Earth? Seeing the latest spacecraft images from around the Solar System, prepare to scrape your jaw off the floor as Dr. Kirby Runyon helps you understand what you’re seeing. Ride along with him as he was the first person to glimpse mountains on Pluto as NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft zipped past that tiny planet. Discover the morning fog role through Mars’ Grand Canyon—Valles Mariners. Witness the violence of volcanoes from Hawaii to Jupiter’s moon Io and beyond.

    Attendees leave with a heightened sense of awe of the natural world above them and equipped with the knowledge to feed their newfound interest. 'His obvious excitement and enthusiasm for his subject was contagious', and he was able to break down some complex systems into understandable pieces.

  • Science and Spirituality: Can I be both a scientific and a spiritual person?

    Dr. Kirby Runyon shares his personal story in spirituality and science. A passion for space science and lifelong spiritual practice combine in complimentary ways. Kirby shatters the misconception that scientists can’t be spiritual while staying true to the scientific method.

    Kirby has spent decades integrating his two life passions-faith and science--into a beautiful tapestry. He weaves together these oft-opposed subjects in thought-provoking and accessible ways, encouraging his audience to think deeply, question their assumptions, and take in the wonder and grandeur of it all. His ability to communicate with energy and precision is unmatched, which pairs superbly with his thoughtfulness and insight.
