If you are an astronaut, what happens when you get a toothache at the international space station?

Who cuts your hair? What do you do when there's an orbital debris collision? These are some of the questions Scott Kelly, a veteran of four space flights, answers in his book “Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery”. Kelly recounts his childhood as a struggling student, to his training as an astronaut, to his year in isolation during a space mission.

Host Larry Mantle sits down with Scott Kelly on the pain and gain of living in space. You can watch the replay of our Facebook live stream below.

Scott Kelly will be discussing “Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery” with Bill Nye Tuesday, Nov. 14, in a sold-out Vroman’s Bookstore event at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church. The event starts at 7pm.
