Product Description & Reviews
Newly adapted for young readers from the New York Times bestseller comes the awe-inspiring memoir from NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent a record-breaking year in space.
How does a boy struggling in school become an American hero and a space pioneer?
Daredevil behavior? Check. Whether it is sailing leaky boats in the Atlantic Ocean or joining an ambulance corps to race to the rescue, living on the edge is required behavior for an astronaut.
Sibling rivalry? Check. An identical twin brother who both cheers you on and eggs you on is the perfect motivator.
Inspiration? Check. Finding the right book can unexpectedly change the course of your life by providing a dream and a road map for achieving it.
Courage? Check. Mastering skills that could mean the difference between life and death as a fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut takes bravery.
Endurance? Check. The grit and can-do spirit that enables you to get up every time you're knocked down and fuels the power to meet each challenge head-on and then ask, "What's next?"
Scott Kelly believes, "If you can dream it, you can do it." This checklist put Scott on a rocket that launched him into space, allowed him to break a record during his inspiring year aboard the International Space Station, and showed human beings the qualities needed to go from Earth to Mars--and beyond.
"An engaging and high-flying read for nonfiction and space lovers alike." --School Library Journal
