Space traveler Scott Kelly has landed securely in Kazakhstan at 11:26 p.m. Eastern time (EST) in smooth climate in the wake of burning through 340 days in space on the International space station Flight engineer Sergey Volkov got off the van initially, trailed by Commander Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko.
The reason for Scott Kelly’s year long adventure on the ISS is with the goal that NASA can ponder the long haul impacts that space has on a human body. Administrator Kelly will experience a progression of test like climbing a step and getting up from a situated position with a specific end goal to decide how well he has acclimated to gravity.
Kelly and Kornienko have been on board the space station for 340 days, about twice the length past groups. Their flight sets a record for the space station and for the longest U.S. space mission.
The men embraced their crewmates farewell and skimmed inside their Soyuz case at 4:43 p.m. EST (2143 GMT), alongside Volkov, who has been in space for 5-1/2 months.
“The voyage isn’t over,” Kelly posted on Twitter before leaving the station. “See you down underneath!”
All through their almost year-long stay in space, Kelly, 52, and Kornienko, 55, have been the subjects for many therapeutic examinations and science considers intended to take in more about how weightlessness and the high radiation environment of space effect the human body.
The examination is planned to help the U.S. space office and its accomplices create plans for possible human missions to Mars that will last no less than two years.
Kelly, alongside his indistinguishable twin sibling Mark Kelly, a previous NASA space traveler, likewise are taking an interest in hereditary studies, the first to evaluate if hereditary changes happen amid long spaceflights.
Kelly’s 340-day mission overshadows the past U.S. record-long spaceflight of 215 days set by previous space traveler Michael Lopez-Alegria on board the space station in 2007.
The world’s longest missions were made by four Soviet-time cosmonauts on board the now-outdated Mir space station, including a January 1994 to March 1995 flight spreading over almost 438 days by record holder Valeri Polyakov, a doctor.
The International Space Station, a joint undertaking of the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan and Canada, took after Mir and has been for all time staffed by turning groups subsequent to 2000.
About the span of a five-room house, the $100 billion station flies around 250 miles (400 km) above Earth.
