You may not know the name Scott Kelly, but you know what he’s done: He spent a year aboard the International Space Station while his twin brother, Mark Kelly (also an astronaut) spent the year on Earth. Not only did this flight mean a unique opportunity to study the effects of spaceflight on the human body, but Kelly set a new record for the longest single spaceflight. Now, Kelly is writing his memoir of that time spent in space, chronicling the exhilaration of being an astronaut, but also the loneliness and weariness that comes with being a starman. I’m always a fan of astronaut memoirs, but I’m especially looking forward to this book.
