Lunch Keynote: The Sky is Not the Limit: Lessons From a Year in Space

Open to full-conference pass attendees, a boxed lunch will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

During his record-breaking year in space, U.S. astronaut and Expedition 46 Commander Scott Kelly captivated the world while laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration. And while science was at the core of Kelly’s groundbreaking expedition, it is his life lessons and personal stories from 229 miles above Earth and the path that led him there that provide such unique and valuable advice on pushing one's own limits. With a journey that exemplifies the power and resilience of the human spirit, from U.S. Navy fighter pilot to record-holding astronaut, Kelly reveals the choices and life events that paved his way. An American hero whose contribution to humanity is as far reaching as his out-of-this-world adventure, Kelly reflects on his journey with his trademark candor, humor and humility. From the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, to the long term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth itself, Kelly delivers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
