Scott Kelly invokes a deeply moving and somewhat humorous reflection on life as he documents his year-long residence at the International Space Station. In the pursuit of better information for potential voyages to Mars, he endured the grueling tasks involved in surviving zero gravity. His mission is the longest period of time in space humankind has attempted to date. In the end, he discovers more than science could ever reveal about himself and the world we make our home.
