Scott Kelly, the recorder, recalled his time in the air through photography.
Kelly, who spent 340 days on board The space station in 2015 and 2016, he just started his first NFT, a film series called “Dreams Out of This World.” He hoped that giving people to pick up the stars would make him stronger, as it had been a book that had encouraged him in the past.
“My story isn’t the usual astronaut story. I was a bad student growing up – not good in school, kind of a dream,” Kelly told Space.com.
“I got the motivation in a book, it was Tom Wolfe ‘The Right One,’“He’s connected.” So I really believe this idea of motivation, done in the right way for the right person at the right time, can have amazing results. “

NFT (non-fungible symbols) are pieces of data, stored in an email database called a blockchain, that represent unique properties. NFTs are an emerging part of the digital world called the metaverse, and Kelly hopes “Dreams Out of This World” will help introduce people to this new confusion.
“I think of the metaverse and crypto[currency] and blockchain is the key to our future, “he said. So that was the right time for me to get involved. “
The fall of “Dreams Out of This World” is a collaboration with design studio Orange Comet. It’s in the pieces that show Kelly in the sky, with a redesigned world later. Those pieces went on sale today (April 12) – International Day of Human Spaceflight, which celebrates the cosmonaut. ʻO Yuri Gagarin the history of the 1961 orbital mission – including some of Kelly’s aircraft memorabilia.
The auction will continue for 72 hours. You can learn more and see the pieces, here (opens on new page).
All nets from this first fall will go to Ukraine’s campaign Global Empowerment Mission (opens on new page) (GEM), a non -profit organization that helps affected nations and communities.
“We are there to help in the midst of disaster and crisis, and GEM is grateful for any future efforts to support the mission,” said GEM president and founder Michael Capponi in a word.
“Every student, developer, organization and partner has a unique role to play in the ongoing commitment of long -term support that we are able to provide as a non -governmental organization, and we appreciate Scott and the company for their generous donations and development activities to support .and provide assistance, “Capponi said.
This financial detail doesn’t have to come as a surprise; Kelly is a vocal opponent of Russia’s continuity invasion of Ukraine, criticizing often and in very strong words. And one of the new “Dreams Out of This World” episodes shows Ukraine’s famous blue-yellow flag flying over Earth.
“Putin’s war crimes and the support of the Russians or neglect of them have punished Russia with a catastrophe in the future,” he said. Kelly was stunned (opens on new page)in Russian and English, on April 5th.
Kelly is no longer a part of American history of flying the longest man on the road. NASA’s Mark Vande Hey broke now, returning home on March 30th after 355 days of stay on the airport.
But Kelly was far from bitter about losing the top position.
“I think it’s a really good thing, because it shows we’re making progress,” he said. “Stories are made for breaking. So I’m really happy to see Mark do that, and I know someone will break his story one day.”
