Scott Kelly is writing a book, the astronaut's newest adventure after breaking the record for most consecutive days spent in space, The Associated Press reported.

Kelly, who last month returned from a yearlong, record-breaking mission at the International Space Station, has a deal with Alfred A. Knopf for "Endurance: My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars."

Knopf announced Wednesday that Kelly will discuss the future of space travel and tell his own story, sharing moments "great and small, heart wrenching and harrowing." The book is scheduled for publication in November 2017 and will be written with Margaret Lazarus Dean.

Kelly also plans several works for young people to be published by Random House Children's Books, and a collection of photographs taken aboard the space station. The 52-year-old Kelly announced his retirement nine days after his mission ended.
