Captain Scott Kelly

The Sky is Not the Limit: Lessons from a Year in Space

This show has passed

During his record-breaking year in space, U.S. Astronaut Captain Scott Kelly captivated the world while laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration. An American hero, Captain Kelly takes you on an extraordinary out-of-this-world adventure as he reflects on his experiences and delivers unparalleled life lessons, fascinating stories and candid commentary on his epic 143-million mile journey sure to bring audiences to the edge of their seats. Gold seating includes meet and greet.


Back from his historic record-breaking Year In Space, NASA astronaut Captain Scott Kelly has laid the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration, and continues to garner media exposure like no other pioneer of our time. From the cover of TIME to live interviews on TODAY to features in Forbes and on CNN to a Twitter following that is rapidly approaching 1 million, the world remains in awe as we celebrate a hero’s return to the planet that is hone, from an adventure that is extraordinary. With life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one’s own limits, to insight on the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, and the challenges—such as long term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth—Kelly reflects on the choices and life events that paved his journey’s path and brings audiences to the edge of their seats as he delivers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

An astronaut since 1996, Kelly’s achievements over his illustrious 20-year career with NASA earned him the coveted position as America’s first year-round astronaut. On his historic mission that spanned from March 2015 to March 2016, Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko conducted experiments, reconfigured station modules, and captivated the world with live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station.
