Another history in Space Science has just been created – this time, the credit goes to Astronaut Scott Kelly. After spending nearly one year in International Space Station, Kelly will land at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
Astronaut Scott Kelly born on February 21, 1964, is a retired U.S. Navy Captain returning to earth after 340 days in space, the longest stay in space for a NASA astronaut. The longest stay for any person on ISS is held by Russian astronaut Valeri Polyakov who returned to Earth in 1995.
Kelly, along with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov, will be landing at Baikonur Cosmodrome at 11.25 p.m EST with the Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
