Astronaut Scott Kelly Reveals Some Pretty Disturbing Things

Scott Kelly is one of the more famous astronauts in recent times, having completed a record-breaking year-long stay on the ISS from March 2015 to March 2016. Now the NASA astronaut has a new autobiography coming out, and it provides some rather fascinating details about his time in space. The book is called Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery, and it’s on sale Tuesday, October 17. One of the major revelations in the book comes from Kelly’s previous space mission in 2010. He describes how a Russian cosmonaut came untethered from the International Space Station (ISS) during a spacewalk. It was only thanks to hitting an antenna that he drifted back towards the station. The cosmonaut would have floated away and died in space from oxygen deprivation. He also described a moment where he nearly got hit by space junk, not too dissimilar to the film Gravity. Kelly’s book doesn’t beat around the bush, getting straight to the point on aspects of spaceflight and his own troubled personal life. This might be one worth checking out…… Ed
