Facebook Live with Scott Kelly

History-making NASA Astronaut

Captain Scott Kelly, the first NASA astronaut to complete a nearly one-year space mission, shared his story on living in isolation on this Bruce Power virtual information session around the COVID-19 pandemic.

Captain Kelly, retired NASA astronaut and U.S. Navy captain, presented Tips On Living In Isolation and was joined by Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO.

A veteran of four space flights, and a commander of the International Space Station on three expeditions, Captain Kelly was a member of an almost year-long mission to the station, the single longest space mission by an American astronaut. He was enrolled in a unique study that measured the impact of space travel on his body and compared it to his twin brother, Mark, also an astronaut who spent the same year on Earth.

Captain Kelly also wrote the best-selling Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery and Infinite Wonder: An Astronaut’s Photographs From a Year in Space, which is a collection of photos documenting his journey on the space station.
