Clear Skies Over the United States

On Sept. 17, 2015, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly captured images and video from the International Space Station during an early morning flyover of the United States. Sharing with his social media followers, Kelly wrote, "Clear skies over much of the USA today. #GoodMorning from @Space_Station! #YearInSpace."

Tuesday, Sept. 15 marked the midpoint of the one-year mission to the space station for Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko. The average International Space Station expedition lasts four to six months. Research enabled by the one-year mission will help scientists better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to long-duration spaceflight. This knowledge is critical as NASA looks toward human missions deeper into the solar system, including to and from Mars, which could last 500 days or longer.

On Sept. 15, 2015, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will clock in for their 171st day aboard the International Space Station since arriving on March 27. The pair, set to come home March 3, 2016, are spending 342 days in space to help researchers better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to long duration spaceflight.

“I think the legacy of this mission will be based on the science of having us in space for a year,” remarked Kelly in a recent interview. “The great data we collected, what we learned about being in space for this long and how that will help our journey to Mars someday.”

In their almost six months in orbit, Kelly and Kornienko have participated in a range of scientific experiments focusing on seven key areas of human research.

One of the most ambitious studies undertaken so far is Fluid Shifts, which studies what happens when fluids shift into the upper body during weightlessness. This shift may cause changes in vision through increased intracranial pressure and is a major issue that scientists are looking to resolve before humans begin exploring beyond Earth’s orbit. The study uses the Russian Chibis device to draw fluids back into the legs while measurements of the subject’s eyes are taken to track any changes. NASA and Roscosmos are already looking at continuing the Fluid Shifts investigation with future space station crews beyond the one-year mission.

All research gathered from both the American and Russian crew members is shared between the countries, an important step in reducing cost and improving efficiency for future space station research. This has already led to additional agreements between NASA and Roscosmos to expand this collaboration to research outside of the yearlong mission.

Samples for the comparative genetics studies involving Kelly and his identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, continue to be collected with some already returned to Earth. Analysis for the Twins Study will begin at the conclusion of the mission once all samples have been collected.

NASA and Roscosmos are already investigating ideas for future space station missions to prove technologies and techniques necessary for trips deeper into the solar system. The space agencies are evaluating whether to do additional one-year missions and other proposals, like having crew members perform surface simulations on Earth immediately after returning from space.

The station also continues to serve as a test bed for important technologies that will help pave the way for a human journey to Mars. Vital systems including life support, communications, power generation and more are being put through the paces in a spaceflight environment, with newer system generations on the horizon.

The one-year crew 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 push the boundaries of exploration and contribute to human health.

Aurora's Colorful Veil Over Earth

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly (@StationCDRKelly) shared this photograph on social media, taken from the International Space Station on August 15, 2015. Kelly wrote, "#Aurora trailing a colorful veil over Earth this morning. Good morning from @space_station! #YearInSpace"

The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views, but also capture the imagination of scientists who study incoming energy and particles from the sun. Aurora are one effect of such energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs. After a trip toward Earth that can last two to three days, the solar particles and magnetic fields cause the release of particles already trapped near Earth, which in turn trigger reactions in the upper atmosphere in which oxygen and nitrogen molecules release photons of light. The result: the Northern and Southern lights.

NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly Available for Interviews before one-Year Space Station Mission

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who is making final preparations for his launch this month to spend a year living and working on the International Space Station, will be available for live satellite interviews from 5:30 to 7 a.m. EDT Monday, March 9.

Kelly will participate from Moscow as he completes the final weeks of his training. The interviews will be preceded at 5 a.m. by a video on NASA Television highlighting his mission training and previous spaceflights.

To schedule an interview, reporters should contact Seth Marcantel at 281-792-7515 no later than 2 p.m. Friday, March 6. Media participating in the live shots must tune to NTV-3. Satellite tuning information is available at:

http://go.nasa.gov/1pOWUhR

Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) will spend a year on the space station to better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to the harsh environment of space. Data from the expedition will be used to determine whether there are ways to further reduce the risks on future long-duration missions to an asteroid and eventually Mars.

The crew will support several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the orbiting laboratory. Data and samples will be collected throughout the year from a series of studies involving Scott and his twin brother, former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly. The studies will compare data from the genetically identical Kelly brothers to identify any subtle changes caused by spaceflight.

Kelly, Kornienko and cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, also of Roscosmos, will launch to the station aboard a Soyuz spacecraft at 3:42 p.m. EDT on March 27 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The three will join Expedition 43 Commander Terry Virts of NASA, Samantha Cristoforetti of ESA (European Space Agency) and cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos. Kelly and Kornienko will remain aboard the space station until March 2016.

Kelly was born in Orange, New Jersey, and earned degrees from the State University of New York Maritime College and the University of Tennessee. Kelly, a retired U.S. Navy captain, has accumulated more than 8,000 flight hours in more than 40 different aircraft. He was selected as an astronaut in 1996 and piloted space shuttle Discovery during the STS-103 mission in 1999 and served as commander for the STS-118 mission in 2007. He went on to serve as Expedition 26 commander for his first long-duration space station mission in 2010. He has spent nearly 180 days in space.

Kelly’s official biography is available at:
