Title: Endurance: a year in space, a lifetime of discovery
Author: Scott Kelly
Genre: Nonfiction
Kit Type: Book
Contents: 10 copies + 1 general information sheet + 1 discussion sheet.
"The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few have. Now, he takes us inside a sphere utterly inimical to human life. He describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight: the devastating effects on the body; the isolation from everyone he loves and the comforts of Earth; the pressures of constant close cohabitation; the catastrophic risks of depressurization or colliding with space. But perhaps the most haunting challenge is that of being unable to help should tragedy strike at home - something Kelly knows about firsthand. Kelly's humanity, compassion, humor, and passion resonate throughout, as he recalls his rough-and-tumble New Jersey childhood and the youthful inspiration that sparked his astounding. Here, in his personal story, we see the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will, and the boundless wonder of the galaxy."
