Former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly has officially dropped his first-ever non-fungible token (NFT) to aid the Ukrainian war effort. Ukraine’s valiant battle against Russia’s invasion continues to inspire efforts across the cryptosphere and beyond.
According to a press release issued in conjunction with the event, the piece, titled “Dreams Out of This World,” will be released today on the International Day of Human Space Flight, and 100 percent of the proceeds from its sale will go to the Global Empowerment Mission to aid Ukraine’s fight against its invaders.
The NFT was created by Orange Comet, a content creation studio.
Kelly, a veteran fighter jet pilot, orbited the Earth over 8,300 times during his NASA tenure. According to the press release, the American astronaut has gone over 200 million miles and flew over or visited numerous parts of the globe.
According to the Orange Comet website, Kelly achieved the record for the overall number of days spent in space in what was the single longest space mission by a US astronaut in October 2015.
According to Kelly,
“Much like space travel, the metaverse may not appear to be accessible to the general public at this moment. In addition to reigniting interest in space, I am ecstatic to be able to help the people of Ukraine during this difficult time by contributing 100% of the net revenues from the inaugural sale to the Global Empowerment Mission.”
The astronaut went on to remark about his support to the campaign to aid Ukrainians, saying:
“It is my desire that this NFT collection not only inspires individuals who participate in the auction, but also uplifts those who are experiencing the darkest period in human history.”
Starting today at 9 a.m. PT, the NFT will be available for purchase on the OpenSea marketplace (4 p.m. UTC). The auction will take place over the course of 72 hours.
