Scott Kelly, a retired U.S. Navy captain and veteran of four space flights, joins the 3rd hour of TODAY virtually from Denver to discuss his new children’s book, “Goodnight Astronaut,” which he will read aloud on his Instagram later Wednesday. He also weighs in on the news announced by SpaceX that it will be sending its first all-civilian crew into space. “I’m a civilian now, and my schedule is wide open,” he says.
