Antonia to deliver TED Talk at TEDxCU, entitled, “Women and Girls are Leading the Way to the End of the Fossil Fuel Era: Will Everyone Else Follow?”

On February 14, 1990, NASA’s Voyager 1 took an image of earth from 4 billion miles away. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this iconic image, TEDxCU 2020 speakers will inspire and challenge us to think about how our past and present could shape our future.

For Early Bird Ticket pricing enter code: EARLYBIRD. Early Bird ticket sales end on January 31st. Front row tickets are not included in Early Bird ticket pricing. For a general seat map, see the image at the bottom of this page.

Speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. This is the 8th TEDxCU mainstage event and we are proud that interest in our event has grown the past few years. This year we are moving to Macky Auditorium and Concert Hall on the campus of CU Boulder!

We are also proud that we can keep our ticket prices low due to our generous partners both on and off campus. CU student tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks.

Voyager 1’s image inspired the title of Carl Sagan’s 1994 book, “Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.”

“Look again at that dot,” Sagan wrote in his book “Pale Blue Dot.” “That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

— Carl Sagan, “Pale Blue Dot,” 1994
