Former Astronaut Scott Kelly Recounts His Year Orbiting Earth

Maybe holiday traffic is making you wish you lived in space. Former astronaut Scott Kelly talks about spending a whole year orbiting earth — a time he recounts in his new book Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery.

Kelly joins Morning Shift to talk about why the space program continues to be important to the country and even gives his opinion about people who insist the earth is flat.
