Do you know who Mark Kelly is? He is a former astronaut who is running for senate. Not only has Kelly been to space, but he has also been to some local libraries. I had the chance to meet him at the downtown library. He read his bestselling book, “Mousetronaut.”

After the reading, he answered questions. Kelly says he flew 17,000 miles per hour in space. He also noted that the first time you’re in zero gravity, it feels weird.

Kelly’s identical twin brother, Scott Kelly, has been to space, also. The two have written a book together.
