Twofer Tuesday - Mark and Scott Kelly

Former NASA astronauts, twin brothers Mark and Scott Kelly have each racked up a number of accolades and accomplishments during their distinguished careers and service to our country.  Mark recently was elected to the U.S. Senate.  Scott spent a year in space as part of a study on how space travel affects the body (click here for that story.)

To read more about Mark (click here.)  For Scott's bio (click here.)  That they both attended Pax River's TPS at the same time is kind of cool too.  The following is excerpted from Scott's bio:

Given all that the Kelly twins have accomplished, the following video/song is probably a little too silly for me to have included here as a musical selection.  However, I couldn't resist it because not only is it funny, but also it shows just how brothers carry on whether they are twins or not.  One question popped into my mind though, if they are twins how could the Mom ever say that one of them was an accident!
