Look out Toronto, here we come

Chris Hadfield, aka “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,” will be our keynote speaker During his multi-faceted career, Hadfield has intercepted Soviet bombers in Canadian airspace, lived on the ocean floor, been NASA’s Director of Operations in Russia, and recorded science and music videos seen by hundreds of millions. Colonel Hadfield continues to bring the marvels of science and space travel to everyone he encounters. Come see him during opening session.

Acclaimed singer and songwriter Jewel will perform during the gala dinner. Aside from her musical talents, Jewel is also an actress, painter, philanthropist and poet (with two published collections, including New York Times bestseller A Night Without Armor). From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, the four-time Grammy nominee has enjoyed a career longevity rare among her generation of artists.
