New Delhi: American astronaut Scott Kelly descends down to Earth from the International Space Station today.

Kelly's #YearInSpace has been full of amazing moments that he shared with the entire world through tweets and Instagram posts.

Yesterday, Kelly officially handed over the baton of the International Space Station to Tim Kopra, in a traditional Change of Command ceremony.

 

Expedition 47 will officially begin under Kopra’s command when the Soyuz spacecraft carrying Kelly and Russian cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov undocks from the space station today.

Kelly and Kornienko launched to the space station on March 27, 2015, for their one-year mission.
