Astronaut Scott Kelly thought about joining the NYPD

Scott Kelly, who spent a year in space aboard the International Space Station, revealed that he has completed about 25 percent of his memoir, “My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars,” for the Alfred A. Knopf imprint of Penguin Random House.

But he admitted to our Keith J. Kelly he once thought of pursuing a career on the NYPD instead of an astronaut.

His father, Richard, and his late mother, Patricia, both worked n law enforcement as New Jersey state troopers.

Scott told assembled Kelly Gang members at Michael’s restaurant recently that in their freshman year at Mountain High School in West Orange, NJ, he and his twin brother, Mark, were warned by their dad that if their grades did not improve, they should begin to consider a well-paying trade.

“He suggested we become welders,” recalled Scott to the “Gang,” which included former top cop Ray Kelly, CPA Kevin Kelly and ad executive Colleen Kelly.

Up until then, Scott said he figured he might want to join the NYPD. “So I might have ended up working for you,” he said, turning to Ray Kelly.

Scott credits picking up a copy of Tom Wolfe’s “The Right Stuff,” about the pilots picked to be the first Mercury astronauts, near the end of his high school years for changing his mind and putting him on the right course.

“I didn’t think I’d be an astronaut, but it gave me the idea of becoming a pilot,” he said.
