About Captains Mark and Scott Kelly
Heroes who exemplify courage, leadership and sacrifice, American astronauts and identical twin brothers, Captains Mark and Scott Kelly have secured their place in history, laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration.
With careers as remarkable as they are similar, the Kelly brothers served in the U.S. Navy, retiring as experienced aviators and decorated Captains, prior to starting their illustrious careers with NASA in 1996.
Now retired after 15 years with NASA, Mark spent more than 50 days in space and commanded both the Space Shuttle Endeavour, including its final flight in 2011, and Space Shuttle Discovery. He is one of only two individuals who have visited the International Space Station on four different occasions.
As America's first year-round astronaut, Scott’s record-breaking Year In Space spanned from March 2015 to March 2016, during which, he and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko captivated the world with live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station. Scott continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time.
The historic mission also included NASA's groundbreaking Twins Study, monitoring Scott from space and Mark on the ground, in an unprecedented experiment to understand how space affects the human body.
With candid reflections on the experiences and lessons that shaped their views on teamwork and leadership, on overcoming adversities and dealing with tragedy, to personal strategies for harnessing courage and adapting to change, Mark and Scott deliver twice the insight and inspiration in a one-of-a-kind presentation.
Coming in Fall 2017, Scott’s widely anticipated memoir, Endurance: My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars will feature his life and career experiences, including exclusive commentary from Mark, and was recently optioned by Sony Pictures.

Mark and Scott were FANTASTIC! From the pre-show call to onsite rehearsal and their keynote address, they were absolute professionals and very pleasant to work with. They even offered to go to the pool party afterwards when the temperatures were 110+ degrees!
