A Year in Space
On March 27, 2015, Kelly and Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko began a one-year mission in space, testing the limits of human research, space exploration and the human spirit. The mission is the latest step in the International Space Station’s role as a platform for preparing humanity for exploration into deeper space. With the collaborative efforts of the international crew and research teams, the world can watch and benefit from findings that are pushing the boundaries of exploration while contributing to human health.
