After a year-long space station flight, NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly finally landed back on Earth along with fellow NASA Cosmonauts Sergey Volkov and Mikhail Kornienko.

The #YearInSpace initiative by NASA officially came to an end with a successful mission, making Kelly the first American to have experienced the longest time on space.

Many monumental things happened during his space stay, for instance, eating the first ever space grown veggies, experiencing the best in the class humanoid robot, Robonaut 2, and much more.

Despite plunging at 17,000 Miles / Hour speed, the cosmonauts smoothly landed at 11: 26 pm EST in Kazakhstan on March 1, 2016.

NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly, being the exuberant user of social media that he is, posted the final photo of the beautiful sunrise from space.

Before leaving for his year-long space expedition, Kelly had promised everyone to maintain a private journal about his experience in space, which he fulfilled very much as he consistently shared numerous photographs on Twitter taken from space station situated at a distance of 200 miles above us.

Space Expertise

NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly holds distinction in his research areas. Along with comparison of his pre-mission and post-mission physiology, he will be compared to his identical twin, Mark Kelly, a retired astronaut, to witness the impact of spaceflight on the genome before and after space stay.

On space, the astronauts turned into explorers trying to push the frontiers related to traditional concepts of human body and the human mind in microgravity. The team conducted five health investigations related to human behavior, which examined emotion, fatigue, cognitive performance, brain structure, and sleep in microgravity because NASA needs to explore more about such changes in the human body before it prepares another team of people for MISSION MARS or any other spaceflight with longer durations.

#YearInSpace

NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly sampled first-ever space grown veggies and cajoled zinnias to flourish in Zero Gravity.

Thrice he took the space walk and twice he had to endure failed delivery missions for the cargo ship.

He has taken part in crucial experiments conducted to characterize the effect of microgravity on eyesight.

He measured sound in microgravity.

He worked on almost 400 studies for investigating the Earth from space.

Kelly said, “I want to thank everyone on the ground, first, that dedicated in some cases their lives, their working lives to this program; they are just as important to this endeavor, to our future going to Mars someday, as Misha and I."
