New Delhi: NASA astronaut and Expedition 46 Commander Scott Kelly and his crewmate cosmonauts Sergey Volkov and Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos safely returned to Earth on Tuesday night after a historic 340-day mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
While in space, Kelly and Kornienko conducted research on the long duration effects of weightlessness on the human body that will be used to formulate a human mission to Mars.
The trio were greeted during a traditional ceremony in Kazakhstan on March 2, a few hours after landing in their Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft.
