Retired NASA astronaut Capt. Scott Kelly will present The Sky is Not the Limit: Lessons From a Year in Space as Trinity University’s Fall 2016 Distinguished Lecture.

He also will discuss insights on the leadership and teamwork required in demanding conditions and challenges, such as long term sequestration from loved ones.
