How Leland Melvin Went From the NFL to Becoming an Astronaut

The former player talks about embracing change and new beginnings in this episode of 'Spinoffs'

“It’s never too late to figure out why you were born,” Leland Melvin says. He’s worn many hats: astronaut, “STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, math) explorer,” athlete, engineer, even photographer. “I really hope that people get with us 50-plusers that you can do anything you can put your mind to,” he says.
