Astronaut Scott Kelly on what it's like to return to Earth after a year in space


[Read the post]


Scott Kelly missed a few things while he was circling the planet.


I just kept thinking of Gibson and Sterling’s short story Red Star, Winter Orbit and Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, in which characters have to stay where they are (space station and the moon, respectively) because of the long term changes to their bodies caused by those environments.


It’s like, heavy, man.


“Man, I was like, so high!”


Well done.


For you, only the best will do - it is my honor and my pleasure! :grin:


He looks quite a lot like John Locke, doesn’t he?


I’m disappointed that belts are apparently still required in zero g.
