Boston Globe The Big Picture: Scott Kelly’s year in space.
“NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is scheduled to return to Earth tonight after a 340-day mission aboard the International Space Station, where he participated in research on how the human body reacts and adapts to long-duration spaceflight. He also captured views of our planet that unify science and art, sharing them on social media for the earthbound to follow. Even President Barack Obama kept an eye on Kelly’s accounts, asking him on Twitter, “Do you ever look out the window and just freak out?” to which Kelly replied, “I don’t freak out about anything, Mr. President. Except getting a Twitter question from you.” Abstract and out of this world, here’s Earth from an astronaut’s perspective.”
