Retired astronaut Mark Kelly was in Atlanta Tuesday night as part of a new mission. The goal: Get younger generations excited about space.
Kelly gave a talk at the Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church in Emory Village to kick off the Atlanta Science Festival. He was met by a sea of fans, most of them children.
Austin Valencia, 6, said he was nervous to meet Kelly.
"It's just because I never met an astronaut before and this is, like, my first time doing this,” Austin said.
