Ep 79: Captain Scott Kelly on Space Travel

Captain Scott Kelly is a former NASA astronaut who spent almost a year on the International Space Station and 520 total days in space, which is beautifully chronicled in his book Endurance.  Captain Kelly’s path to outer space wasn’t an easy one, as he struggled academically as a young boy, being told explicitly he didn’t have what it takes to succeed in the world. Finding inspiration along the way was key to Kelly’s ability to fight through failure and persevere. His fascinating story of his journey to flight and what space can do to the human mind and body is a remarkable reminder of what can be accomplished when we’re inspired to reach new limits.
