The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space, astronaut Scott Kelly has experienced things very few have: How does it feel to be launched in a rocket? What happens to your body in zero gravity? What do you do when you get a toothache 250 miles above the Earth? Kelly discusses this and more in "Endurance," which recounts his year aboard the ISS as well as his rough-and-tumble New Jersey childhood and what sparked his astounding career, changing his trajectory from an unfocused, below-average student to a record-setting astronaut. Learn about his life on and off this planet, and what it will take to make the journey to Mars. As Kelly says—a lesson he's learned firsthand—"if we can dream it, we can do it."
