The Shaklee Family proudly welcomes astronauts, aviators and American heroes Mark and Scott Kelly as our Shaklee Live 2016 Keynote Speakers!
Captain Mark Kelly
Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s Final Mission & Space and Aviation Contributor for NBC News/MSNBC
With the recent launch of the historic year-long space expedition and Twins Study, decorated American astronaut, Mark Kelly continues to secure his place in history, partnering with his brother, Scott from the ground to participate in an unprecedented NASA study on how space affects the human body. Recently named the Space and Aviation Contributor for NBC News and MSNBC, over the next year, he will be providing the world with insider perspective and intimate coverage of the yearlong experiment.
Already an experienced aviator and retired US Navy Captain, Kelly began his career as an astronaut in 1996. During his illustrious career with NASA, he spent more than 50 days in space and commanded both the Space Shuttle Endeavour, including its final flight in May 2011, and Space Shuttle Discovery, and is one of only two individuals who have visited the International Space Station on four different occasions.
Kelly is also a #1 New York Times best-selling author and a founder of World View Enterprises, a company pioneering a new frontier at the edge of space.
In January 2011, Kelly became the center of international attention after the assassination attempt on his wife, former US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Their story captivated the nation and resulted in the couple becoming an unequivocal symbol of strength and perseverance.
An American hero who exemplifies effective leadership and courage under pressure, Kelly offers audiences insights drawn from his various and extensive experiences, from leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight and making history, to the importance of commitment to career and family, in order to truly define and achieve success.
Captain Scott Kelly
History-Making U.S. Astronaut & Retired U.S. Navy Captain
On his quest for a record-breaking full year in space on a historic expedition laying the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly has captivated the world, garnering media exposure like no other pioneer of our time. From the cover of TIME to live interviews on TODAY to features in Forbes and on CNN, the world remains in awe each day as he approaches the 1-year mark. With life lessons and personal stories that reveal unique and valuable advice on pushing one’s own limits, to insight on the leadership and teamwork required in such demanding conditions, and the challenges—such as long term deprivation from loved ones and Planet Earth—Kelly will reflect on the choices and life events that paved his journey’s path and bring audiences to the edge of their seats as he delivers a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Since becoming an astronaut in 1996, Kelly’s achievements over his illustrious 20-year career with NASA earned him the coveted position as America’s first year-round astronaut. Kelly launched into space on the historic mission in March 2015 with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko, conducting experiments, reconfiguring station modules, and captivating the world with live interviews and fascinating Twitter posts featuring never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station 229 miles above Earth.
The historic mission also includes NASA’s groundbreaking Twins Study, featuring Kelly’s identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly on the ground as a control model in an unprecedented experiment to understand how space affects the human body.
Prior to his career with NASA, Kelly served 25 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring as an experienced aviator and decorated Captain.
