Featured NAAA Speaker: Captain Scott Kelly

History-Making U.S. Astronaut & Retired U.S. Navy Captain

Back from his historic record-breaking Year In Space, NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly will reflect on the choices and life events that paved his journey’s path and bring audiences to the edge of their seats as he delivers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

An astronaut since 1996, Kelly’s achievements over his illustrious 20-year career with NASA earned him the coveted position as America’s first year-round astronaut. On his historic mission that spanned from March 2015 to March 2016, Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko conducted experiments, reconfigured station modules, and captivated the world with live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station.

The historic mission also included NASA’s groundbreaking Twins Study, in which Kelly’s identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly served on the ground as a control model in an unprecedented experiment to understand how space affects the human body.
