Astronaut Scott Kelly provided coronavirus blocking tips to motivate children to study

Astronaut Scott Kelly
Former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly has a unique understanding of being isolated and motivated.

In 2016, Kelly became the first American to spend 12 consecutive months in space when he completed a 340-day season on the International Space Station.

With distance learning replacing physical classrooms for millions of children during coronovirus blockade, Kelly says that children's long-term goals and aspirations are more important than ever.

"I think it's important to tell them that despite everything being done, their education is still important," he said, acknowledging that the closure poses many challenges for children and their parents. "Distance learning, or homeschooling, is good for some children, but not for everyone."

Kelly spoke to Fox News before participating in Research Quest Live, which participated in a live session with professional teachers at the Utah Museum of Natural History, while schools are closed. The former astronaut will attend a one-hour question and answer session on Friday at 11:30 a.m. ET as part of Research Quest Live.

Perseverance, he told Fox News, would ultimately pay off for students struggling with distance education. "I agree that it's not easy, the things that are important are often difficult and challenging," he said. "Find inspiration where you can find it."

During an interview with Fox News in 2018, he told how he went from being a bad student to a naval fighter pilot, test pilot and ultimately an astronaut. He said that he owes his famous space career to Tom Wolfe's famous book "The Right Stuff", about the early space program that he read when he was in New York State University's Maritime in the Bronx The university had 18-year-old students. .

Research Quest classes are offered via live broadcast every day of the week and are available on request 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. According to the Utah Museum of Natural History, students from 56 countries and all 50 states have access to the program. "Research Quest Live provides a classroom environment," said Jason Kryan, the museum's executive director, adding that the program teaches subjects such as paleontology, ecology, biodiversity and climate.

According to Krayen, during Friday's event, Kelly will recount her amazing experiences in space and provide inspiration to students. "We're very excited," he told Fox News.

Kelly said that ways to reach a larger audience and children with different attention are now very important, which they are learning from home.
