ABOUT SCOTT KELLY
Scott Kelly completed four space flights and served as Commander aboard the International Space Station on three expeditions. In 2015, Kelly began a year-long mission aboard the International Space Station. The purpose of this mission was to learn how the body reacts and adapts to prolonged habitation in space. That research is critical in assisting scientists and engineers in preparation for future human exploration of Mars. Kelly retired from NASA in 2016 after his return to Earth.
