Astronaut, Ret. U.S. Navy Captain Scott Kelly, holds the American record for the longest number of consecutive days in space, 382. An indomitable explorer, he has flown four space missions, paving the way for the future of space travel.

His memoir Endurance: My Year In Space and Our Journey to Mars chronicles his experience and has been optioned by Sony Pictures.
Kelly holds a B.S. degree in marine engineering from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and an M.S. degree in aeronautical engineering from the U.S. Naval Post-Graduate School. In 29 years serving the United States Navy, Kelly has been awarded 14 medals for distinguished service.
