The orbital perspective MOOC by former NASA astronaut Ron Garan

iss international space station

The International Space Station shows that if 15 nations, sometimes previously enemies, are able to collaborate in space, there must be a way that they collaborate on Earth to fight against poverty, hunger, thirst and for innovation.

Ron Garan is the perfect witness of this “orbital perspective” since he spent 6 months in the International Space Station and did one spacewalk. In this inspiring MOOC, he gives keys for people to collaborate on Earth despite their differences and to create concrete actions.

The professor of this MOOC is Ron Garan, former NASA astronaut and current Adjunct Professor at the universities of Arizona, Florida and Drexel. This course is free if you only want to read the content of the course and to watch the videos. You will have to pay a few dollars if you want to access all of the course, including rating homework, and to have an official certificate to print or to share (on LinkedIn for example).
