Benjamin Franklin National Memorial
The Franklin Institute in collaboration with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia presents an exclusive evening with American Astronaut Scott Kelly.
The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space will draw from his bestselling book, Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery, to describe his journey to the stars. Kelly will recount navigating the extreme challenges of long-term spaceflight, from mundane to life-threatening, and share the youthful inspiration that sparked his astounding career and drastically changed his trajectory to become a record-setting astronaut.
The conversation will be moderated by Craig Snyder, president of the Council, bookended by opening remarks and a Q&A session with The Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts. Guests will receive a pre-signed paperback copy of Kelly’s bestselling book Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery.
