Mark and Scott Kelly are former NASA astronauts, and each has earned his own distinctive collection of accolades. Scott Kelly has completed two long-duration space station missions as well as two shorter trips between 1999 and 2015. His most recent trip, a year-long mission, was also used to explore how the human body adapts to long periods of staying in space. Scott passed along tips on dealing with isolation in space in a New York Times article in February as America braced for social isolation to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Mark Kelly is highly regarded not only in NASA, but also with the U.S. Navy. With over 6,000 flight hours, 39 combat missions, and spending more than 50 days in space, Mark is one of the nation’s most seasoned pilots. Mark Kelly, husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, is challenging Republican Martha McSally for the Arizona seat in the U.S. Senate once held by John McCain.
