“There are few aspects of everyday life that aren’t touched by the technologies developed for space travel,” Kelly writes, “but these innovations aren’t the only benefits of spaceflight…The superhuman accomplishment of innovation, perseverance, and cooperation carried out by thousands of Americans working towards one audacious goal speaks for itself.”

Endurance will be published in November 2017.
