Captain Scott Kelly:
A Year in Space
The astronaut answers some
questions about what it’s like to
be out of this world. CALIN VAN PARIS
Astronaut Scott Kelly retired last year — after spending 340 consecutive days in space. Kelly embarked
on a “One Year Mission” in March 2015, a sojourn
on the International Space Station, which lasted until
March 1, 2016. A former U. S. Navy captain, Kelly
and his identical twin brother, Mark — also a retired
astronaut and U.S. Navy captain — are the only siblings to have both traveled in space. Scott Kelly will
discuss his experiences and his memoir Endurance:
My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars on February
5 and 8 at the Marin Civic Center as part of the MPSF

SK: It will be what we want to make of it. Currently, I
