Mark Kelly, retired astronaut and husband of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, announced his bid for the U.S. Senate. The Arizona seat was previously held by John McCain. Kelly made his announcement through a video posted on social media, and joins the list of astronauts who went on to seek public office. According to Gizmodo, his platform includes a science-based approach to the political issues, and he would be running on the Democratic party ticket. Before his astronaut career, Kelly was a naval pilot who flew during the U.S. Persian Gulf war. NASA selected Kelly as a space shuttle pilot in 1996, and he took four trips onboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Kelly became well-known to the public after his wife, Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, was gravely injured in a shooting that killed six other people.
