內容簡介

太空紀錄保持人的精彩回憶錄

  2016年三月,Scott Kelly 結束在太空中生活341天的任務,安返地球。這是他太空人生涯的最後一個任務,為了人類將來前往月球或火星的長途計畫,以及雙胞胎分處地球與外太空的人體研究。

  身為於外太空生活最久的紀錄保持人,Scott Kelly坦率紀錄下他瘋狂的歷程,精彩絕倫的星球旅行,以及他多彩多姿的成長時期。

  現已退役的Kelly將帶我們一探太空這對人類來說十分嚴苛的領域。他描述了長時間駕駛太空船的極端挑戰、生命時受威脅卻又單調、對身體的致命影響、遠離所愛的人們與舒適的地球、與太空垃圾擦撞的風險,還有無法於家中有難時協助—他曾在某次任務中遇到了一個難受的狀況:他孿生兄弟的妻子在其任務還剩兩個月的時候遭到槍擊。

  本書不僅回顧他的太空壯遊,更重返艱苦跌撞的紐澤西兒時,與啟發他一番事業的契機。他相信,火星將是人類太空飛行的下一個終極挑戰。讀者不僅會在書中看到了人類想像力的終極實現,更體驗意志力延伸到星系中的無限奇蹟。(文/博客來編譯)

  A stunning memoir from the astronaut who spent a record-breaking year aboard the International Space Station--a candid account of his remarkable voyage, of the journeys off the planet that preceded it, and of his colorful formative years.

  The veteran of four spaceflights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few have. Now, he takes us inside a sphere utterly hostile to human life. He describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight, both life-threatening and mundane: the devastating effects on the body; the isolation from everyone he loves and the comforts of Earth; the catastrophic risks of colliding with space junk; and the still more haunting threat of being unable to help should tragedy strike at home--an agonizing situation Kelly faced when, on a previous mission, his twin brother's wife, American Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was shot while he still had two months in space.

  Kelly's humanity, compassion, humor, and determination resonate throughout, as he recalls his rough-and-tumble New Jersey childhood and the youthful inspiration that sparked his astounding career, and as he makes clear his belief that Mars will be the next, ultimately challenging, step in spaceflight.

  A natural storyteller and modern-day hero, Kelly has a message of hope for the future that will inspire for generations to come. Here, in his personal story, we see the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will, and the infinite wonder of the galaxy.

  Review

  “Scott Kelly’s saga is a deeply absorbing and vivid look at a year in space and the many trials and rigors of living weightless inside a football field-sized machine traveling at 17,000 miles per hour. But Endurance satisfies far more than the reader’s technological curiosities; it is replete with humor, thrills, surreal details, and recurring moments of ordinary humanity that turn Kelly’s tale into a loving tribute to the pioneering individuals who risk all to shepherd man’s exploration of the vast beyond.” —Khaled Hosseini, author of And the Mountains Echoed

  “Scott Kelly’s book is as close as I and most everyone else on Earth will ever get to experiencing the fascinating, complex, almost preposterously dangerous business of going into space. When I closed the covers, I felt like I had been out there. Endurance is an utterly gripping book that can stand comfortably in the company of Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff.” —Charles C. Mann, author of 1491

  “At once compelling and cautionary… Fascinating stuff… A worthy read for space buffs, to say nothing of anyone contemplating a voyage to the stars.” —Kirkus

  “Scott Kelly’s memoir of his year in space and all that preceded it is the real thing—honest, dramatic, illuminating, and simply riveting. With clear, compelling writing, he reveals the nature of space exploration, the current state of the space program, and the raw experience of leaving Earth as has no other book.” —T.J. Stiles, author of Custer’s Trials
