Publisher Description

From the Nasa astronaut who spent a record-breaking year aboard the International Space Station – what it’s like out there and what it’s like now, back here. Enter Scott Kelly's fascinating world and dare to think of your own a little differently.

As soon as you realize you aren’t going to die, space is the most fun you’ll ever have...

The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for most consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few of us ever have and very few of us ever will.

Kelly's humanity, compassion, humour, and passion shine as he describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight, both existential and banal. He touches on what’s happened to his body, the sadness of being isolated from everyone he loves; the pressures of constant close cohabitation; the catastrophic risks of colliding with space junk, and the still more haunting threat of being absent should tragedy strike at home.

From a natural storyteller Endurance is one of the finest examples the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will, and the boundless wonder of the galaxy.

Suzie..Q ,

Amazing read…very insightful & inspiring account.

I loved this book and it’s stil resonating with me. Kelly’s account of his year on the ISS, the steps through his life that led to this amazing year in space was hard to put down. I laughed, I cried and I trembled as he encountered humorous and dangerous situations. What a brave and supportive family, Kelly has. Scott Kelly’s reach for the stars is indeed an inspiration to read.
