Scott Kelly, retired astronaut and former commander of the International Space Station (ISS), is the US record holder for the most consecutive days spent in space. A veteran of four space flights, he has experienced things very few people have.
Scott took part in ‘The One-Year Mission’ – a year-long scientific research project to study the health effects of long term space flight on the human body. For every experiment he took part in aboard the ISS, Scott’s identical twin Mark (also an astronaut) completed the same study here on Earth; vital research towards understanding the physiological and psychological trials we need to overcome on any future missions to Mars and beyond.
We’re delighted to welcome Scott to Oxford, where he’ll be talking to broadcaster and writer Dallas Campbell about his new book Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery – a personal account of the wonders and trials of space travel, the challenges of long term space flight and the potential for mankind to set foot on Mars.
Hear first-hand about Scott’s remarkable 365-day voyage, the effects of being isolated from everyone he loved and living with the constant threat of colliding with galactic junk.
An evening guaranteed to inspire and wow anyone interested in space exploration.
NOTE: Copies of Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery will be available on the night from Blackwell’s pop-up bookshop.
