About Winston Scott

Winston Scott has had a  journey to the stars as a NASA astronaut that is a testament to the power of perseverance and vision.  Raised in Miami, Scott’s largely segregated education provided little access to resources, but his own determination combined with the dedication of his teachers set him on an inspiring path of achievement.  Since retiring from NASA Scott has remained an active pilot and his work in space is now regarded as a case study in leadership and expert communication, qualities most clearly exhibited in the much-publicized manual capture of the Spartan satellite in the 1997 Columbia mission.

Continuing to excite readers, Scott’s book, Reflections From Earth Orbit, is not your typical “how do you go to the bathroom in space” book.  Rather, it is a book about life as told through the reflections of Scott, prompted by events that occurred during his two space missions as a NASA astronaut aboard the space shuttles Endeavor and Columbia. Reflections is Scott’s way of sharing some of the experiences that drove him to overcome his life’s obstacles and become one of the select few who journeyed into outer space.
