Ex-NASA astronaut donates $500k from NFT sale to Ukraine

Former NASA astronaut and orbiting record holder Scott Kelly donated $500,000 from the sale of his NFT collection to help Ukraine.

In 2015 and 2016, Kelly spent 340 days aboard the International Space Station. Kelly captured his accomplishment with the art project Dreams Out of This World.

The collection consists of the astronaut’s personal belongings, which he wore while in space, and 3333 postcards with his image. The auction started on April 12 on the OpenSea marketplace and ended in a few hours, raising over $500,000.
